Working Days Lost
In order to help HR professionals and company owners, MEC has developed its own unique Health and Safety Executive (HSE) compliant online audit, which simplifies audit set-up and data collection.
The audit reduces the costs of identifying and managing work-related stress and combats the effects of stress.
Sadly, the incidence of work-related stress is on the increase, with an estimated 828,000 cases of work-related stress, anxiety or depression in Great Britain in 2019/20, resulting in 17.9 million working days lost, at a cost to the economy of £5.2bn.*
Employers are required by law to protect their employees from stress at work by carrying out a risk assessment and acting upon it.
