The National institutes encourage Health and Safety professionals to join an ongoing programme of cooperation by offering a number of grants for these courses. This is because we believe that, with careful planning, Health and Safety professionals can help us in unique ways to achieve goals that benefit both themselves and those who look to them for protection.

The past decade has seen almost revolutionary developments in our understanding about how too much stress affects people at work and when they go home. The knowledge and advice of Health and Safety managers and colleagues is critical to the implementation, within large and small organisations, of protocols that reflect these extraordinary advances. If you haven’t attended a seminar about stress in the past two years, you will almost certainly need to update your knowledge – and this course provides an effective and inexpensive way of doing just that.

Rationale and aims

Methods for dealing effectively with people affected by stress issues have changed out of all recognition in the past ten years but researchers and clinicians have been relatively slow to broadcast this information to people working in Health & Safety. This is particularly disappointing because The National institutes believe that Health & Safety professionals have an important role to play in changing the attitudes and beliefs of many senior managers who have yet to understand the potential for an effective clinical stress care programme.

Many Health & Safety professionals have told us that they often find themselves sandwiched between completely dichotomous attitudes to stress within their organisation. Even the question of whether or not to contact the absent employee is often unresolved. This one-day course introduces Health & Safety professionals to a new way of progressing cases where stress is a declared or suspected reason for absenteeism or presenteeism.

The National institutes believe that, where Job-stress is declared, no case should continue unresolved for more than 12 weeks after a programme of clinical care is instigated.

Subjects to be covered on the course

Defining a clear role for the Health & Safety professional in cases where stress is an issue
Understanding how different attitudes to mental wellbeing in organisations can be addressed
Causes and manifestations of stress
The different stages of stress
Effective stress-reducing progammes for employees and identifying stress-related absence where stress is not declared as an issue
Teaching management that addressing stress effectively is the single most successful way to reduce absenteeism statistics
Using tools and techniques to monitor and manage stress, and managing domestic stress that overlaps with work
Beliefs that contribute to Excess-stress and Post-slow-stress fatigue at work

Teaching Methods

This is an informal, but professionally informative, attendance course that includes lecturing and discussion. Class time is divided between lecturing and group discussion, with questions and interactive participation encouraged at all times. Independent study consists of background reading and maintenance of a reflective diary.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of the course successful participants will have a basic understanding of:

Why humans feel stressed and how to differentiate between the different stages of stress
How to find advice and support for a wide variety of cases where most Health & Safety departments tend to believe they are less successful than they could be
How to work towards an ethically-sound result in stress cases whilst retaining the support of both management and colleagues
How to effectively develop the goals for programmes that will radically reduce average rates of absenteeism and presenteeism
How to measure increased productivity due to decreased levels of Excess-stress and Post-slow-stress fatigue
How to resolve cases where an employee has been absent for 12 weeks or more and stress is declared as a significant contributory factor

Creditable towards:

All Registered Stress Practitioner (Vocational) and (Professional) programmes; Nicrs programmes if postcourse reflective exercise successfully completed.
