riskNET: Stress risk assessment

Guidance for managers conducting a stress risk assessment with a member of their team.

Staff may experience periods of pressure at work, and short periods of pressure are not necessarily of concern. The risk from sustained and/or excessive pressure without the opportunity to recover should be assessed. A stress risk assessment is designed to bring about a meaningful conversation that will ensure actions are taken to remove or reduce the causes and impact of stress. 

Managers should complete a stress risk assessment with the member of staff present when a member of staff raises concerns over stress.
