ApP is totally conversant with the HSE Stress Management Standards approach for tackling organisational stress and uses this with many organisations (click HERE for more about ApP).

However, we also appreciate that for some organisations, the risk assessment approach is not always the most effective. ApP therefore offers a versatile approach to organisational stress management depending on the culture of the organisation. However stress management is introduced, ApP strives to make the process pragmatic, simple, and manager friendly.


The ApP approach to Organisational Stress Management

Based on experience and research, ApP has adopted a four- step approach to organisational stress management. Each step is also available as a separate service.

Step 1 - Analysis of the current situation

A review is carried out on existing, policies, processes and procedures. Existing data is analysed and potential risks identified. It is helpful to look at absence and performance management processes at the same time as there is a considerable amount of overlap.

Before moving on to step 2 you may find it useful to carry out the following organisational stress check.

  1. Does your organisation have a clear policy for workplace stress?
  2. If not, is stress included in any other policy?
  3. If you have a stress policy, do senior managers proactively endorse it?
  4. Do all staff know of and understand the policy for workplace stress?
  5. Do all managers understand their legal duty of care for stress and mental ill health at work?
  6. Do managers understand the difference between pressure and stress and between stress and mental ill health?
  7. Do managers know how they can cause or reduce stress for their team?
  8. Do managers know how to spot someone suffering from stress or mental ill health?
  9. Do managers know what to do if they realise someone at work is suffering?
  10. Have all employees been given advice on how to manage their own personal stress?
  11. Do you have procedures in place to support employees who may be experiencing stress?
  12. Do employees understand what these are?
  13. Do your managers know what their absence, turnover, and productivity figures are?
  14. Are you intending to carry out a risk assessment for stress?
  15. Do you have procedures in place for rehabilitating employees with stress or a common mental health problem back into the workplace?

Score one point for each question you have answered no to.

The more points you score the more help you will need with organisational stress management
