Risk factors for stress

The HSE Management Standards identify the risk factors for work-related stress:

DemandsStaff are able to cope with the demands of the job         
ControlStaff are able to have a say about the way work is done
SupportStaff receive adequate information and support from colleagues and line  managers
RelationshipsStaff are not subjected to unacceptable behaviours e.g. bullying and harassment, at work
RoleStaff understand their role and responsibilities
ChangeStaff are involved and consulted about organisational changes
