Testimonials

“I find Arinite professional, responsive and committed to ensuring excellent health and safety practices within the workplace and within our resident’s homes.

I would recommend Arinite, they are responsive and reply very quickly to correspondence.

In addition to this our consultant is highly knowledgeable and is able to give us up to date information and guidance on a wide range of health and safety matters.

Having an independent person to run scenarios and situations past has resulted in reduced costs for example when we have received reports from insurers.”

Work-related Stress

Stress is ‘the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them at work.’

Pressure keeps us motivated and productive. But too much or sustained pressure can lead to stress, which undermines performance, is costly to employers, and can damage both physical and mental health.

Work-related stress can result in high staff turnover, an increase in sickness absence, reduced work performance, poor timekeeping and complaints.

Key points to consider

  • Assess and manage potential causes of work-related stress by using the HSE Stress Management Standards? http://www.hse.gov.uk/stress/standards/
  • Talk to employees to identify and  tackle any issues.
  • Take action if employees are showing signs of work-related stress.
