All employers have legal responsibility under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 to ensure the health safety and welfare at work of their employees. This includes minimising the risk of stress-related illness or injury to employees.


Managing and developing personal wellbeing is now an essential strand of any Company’s business strategy. THE WILKINS SAFETY GROUP can support you to develop healthy workplaces and improve employee wellbeing which results in:

  • High calibre, committed motivated employees

  • Lower staff turnover

  • Positive financial impacts

Everyone has a part to play in the prevention of work related stress. Using The Management Standards we can assess how stress is being effectively managed in your organisation. We can help managers understand the effect their behaviour can have on staff and train them to develop effective management strategies. Initiatives which help employees to manage their own health and wellbeing and cope effectively with change, both at work (uncertainty, new roles, redundancy, retirement) and in their personal lives (caring responsibilities , financial problems, divorce, bereavement, etc.) can prevent serious mental health issues such as anxiety, stress and depression. Workforce coaching and support at an early stage can help employees develop resilience strategies and reduce the the risk of absence.

If staff do take time off because of work related stress, getting them back to work as quickly as possible is important. A well-managed early return to work will reduce the risk of the absence becoming long-term

The HSE advises that people find it more difficult to return to work after a long-term absence. We can provide impartial third party support to ensure a successful return.
