Stress on the rise

The latest figures published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reveal a worrying trend. Stress and mental health problems amongst workers in Great Britain is now at its highest level for 17 years. These figures, taken from the annual Labour Force Survey and produced by the Office for National Statistics, reveal that 595,000 workers reported experiencing a mental health condition in the last year (to April): 33,000 more than the previous year. Mental health conditions are now the most common type of work-related illness, overtaking even musculoskeletal disorders. The question remains: what can employers and individuals do to combat this troubling trend?
