Purpose and scope
The Company is committed to:
protecting the health, safety and welfare of its employees;
promoting positive mental health for all its staff; and
tackling the causes of stress and work-related mental ill health.
The Company aims to promote a positive working environment where:
it works with employees to promote the physical and mental health of all employees;
all staff feel able to talk openly about their mental health and not fear discrimination if their condition is a disability, or bullying or harassment;
people with mental health issues have the opportunity to participate in the workplace.
The Company recognises that stress in the workplace is a health and safety issue and acknowledges the importance of identifying and reducing the causes of workplace stress.
The Company also recognises that an employee’s performance or behaviour can be affected if they are experiencing mental ill health, and that appropriate support and adjustments should be explored before considering any formal measures such as disciplinary action.
This policy applies to all staff, including employees, temporary and agency workers, other contractors, interns, volunteers and apprentices. Managers are responsible for implementation and the Company is responsible for providing the necessary resources.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) defines stress as 'the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demand placed on them'.
