What is the course about?

We all think that stress is not something to concern ourselves about; however, the World Health Organisation reports that 4 out of 5 adults are suffering from stress disorders and that ‘stress is a worldwide epidemic’. This is further supported by various health and insurance claim statistics that identify that stress related illness are on the increase (1996 W.H.O Survey). The severity of stress related illnesses has prompted Health and Safety Organisations to support workplaces in eliminating work related stress. The Irish Health and Safety Authority have identified that employers have a duty of care to their employees to manage and prevent work related stress (www.hsa.ie).

The first step to support employee’s in managing stress is to education them on what ‘stress’ actually is and equip them with the tools to prevent work related stress from having a negative effect on their mental and physical health.

The Stress Awareness training provides your employees with the learning and tools to prevent and actively manage work related and personal stress.
