Stress Management Guidelines
Guidelines for Employers
- Conduct a stress risk assessment. This will help you to identify the main sources of stress in your workplace and the employees who are most at risk.
- Reduce or remove the risks. This may involve changing work practices, providing more support to employees, or reducing workloads.
- Create a positive, supportive work environment. This means promoting good communication, teamwork, and respect.
- Train employees on stress management. This can help them to understand the causes of stress and develop healthy coping mechanisms.
- Have a policy for dealing with stress-related absence. This should be clear, fair, and supportive.
Guidelines for Employees
- Be mindful of the signs of stress. These can include physical symptoms such as headaches, stomach-aches, and fatigue, as well as emotional symptoms such as irritability, anxiety, and depression.
- Identify your stressors. What are the things that cause you stress at work? Once you know what they are, you can begin to develop strategies for coping with them.
- Take breaks. Get up and move around every 20-30 minutes and ensure you take a longer break for lunch.
- Set realistic expectations. Don’t try to do too much in one day, and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
- Delegate tasks. If you have too much on your plate, don’t be afraid to delegate tasks to others.
- Take care of yourself. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep, eating healthy foods, and exercising regularly.
Development of the iCertifyU App
The App is free, developed by Oliver De Maria (Project Coordinator) and Erin Beck (Project Coordinator) whilst working with the iProtectU IT Developers. Both Erin and Oliver wanted to increase health, safety and wellbeing awareness in the workplace and made it their mission to develop a free, easy-to-use product, available to all.
