Many organisations wish to take action to prevent and manage work-related stressors, but lack suitable, user-friendly methods. StressTools® is a flexible & simple multi-lingual web application designed to meet this need.
StressTools® is available in the following languages: English, Dutch, German, Malay, Norwegian, Portuguese & Spanish.
StressTools®' development builds upon a two year programme of research involving the Health and Safety Executive, BP, Scottish Water, The Keil Centre and a university partner. StressTools® combines the need for a practical approach with robust methods based on current research knowledge.
StressTools®: Five Main Components
- Team-based SRA - Assesses team levels and sources of stress, and identifies locally-relevant solutions via employee involvement.
- Future-focused SRA - Identifies key work-related stressors associated with future projects/organisational changes, so they can be designed out in advance.
- Task-based SRA - To design out work-related stressors and other human factors issues associated with hazardous tasks - particularly relevant to safety-critical industries.
- Comprehensive online manual
- Set of internal management standards - Developed for preventing and managing key work-related stressors, namely: Workload; Job insecurity; Teamworking; Performance feedback; Training & development; Hours of work; Job design; Management support; Tools and equipment; Communication; Role Ambiguity; Skill under-utilisation; Work-life Balance & Effort-reward imbalance.
Following the StressTools® assessment The Keil Centre would work with employees to clarify areas of concern and work up appropriate solutions.
