Employers have a legal duty to protect employees from stress at work by doing a risk assessment and acting on it. The earlier a problem is tackled the less impact it will have.
If you already have a risk assessment in place, consider whether you need to re-assess the situation due to changes and challenges brought about by COVID-19.
Please take a look at the following resources :
- The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has a range of practical support and guidance available including risk assessment templates, a talking toolkit to help start conversations, workbooks, posters, a new mobile app and a new automated stress indicator tool (SIT).
- Acas has free resources to help employers, managers and staff support mental health.
- Please visit the Business Wales Keep Wales Safe at Work pages for further information for your business on dealing with the Coronavirus outbreak.
