StressTools®: team stress risk assessments

StressTools® is a web-based survey that identifies key sources of stress and the potential harm these may be causing to a single team or combination of occupational groups.

Individuals complete a confidential online questionnaire. The system then collates respondent inputs and a report is prepared by a Keil Centre Chartered Psychologist. The report provides a clear, concise and user-friendly presentation of the results, as well as offering practical solutions to any key hazards identified. In addition technical guidance notes provide a comprehensive range of remedial actions.
