HSE report: stress at work is costing billions

The huge cost of stress at work

Workplace stress is costing Britain billions and causing some 150,000 Britons to take at least a month off each year.

The UK Government’s Health and Safety Executive has made stressbusting a priority issue and published guidance to help bosses tackle stress at work.

Stress-related illness is costing Britain up to £3.75 billion a year and causing the annual loss of 6.5m working days, according a major new report published by the UK Government’s Health and Safety Executive.
