Psychosocial risks and work-related stress are among the most challenging issues in occupational safety and health. They impact significantly on the health of individuals, organisations, and national economies
Accidents and ill-health cost businesses money, in lost time, lost skills, insurance premium hikes, legal proceedings, etc. The benefits of effective health and safety management (including mental health) to small businesses are very significant. This is true across all industry sectors and amongst businesses of all shapes and sizes.
