What's New?

The HSE has developed a new stress “Talking Tool”. This provides a structured approach to conversations to discuss topics which can be causes of stress.


This tool is designed with the intention of getting senior management to start conversations about stress and mental health, to raise awareness, reduce stigma surrounding stress and mental health issues and gather evidence as to whether they have a problem with work related stress.

This toolkit is the starting point of the process and part of the required risk assessment. Where a risk from stress is identified, the employer would have to consider steps to remove or reduce that risk. Talking to your colleagues is likely to provide many of these steps, too. 

The toolkit can be accessed below or alternatively under the Workplace Stress Topic.
