Training Overview

Numerous studies and surveys all have come to the same conclusion: stress in the workplace impacts workers and the organizations for which they work. Too much job stress harms health, safety and well-being.

Find the causes and recognize the signs of workplace stress; prevent, eliminate and reduce the effects of workplace stress.

This course introduces participants to the complex issue of stress in the workplace, including what workplace stress is, its causes and negative impacts. Workers and managers alike will learn to identify signs of workplace stress, as well as measures to prevent, eliminate or reduce stress in the workplace.

Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of organizational factors - including the ways in which work is organized. Strategies for employers and workers to manage personal stress will also be addressed.

Note that this course does not address "critical stress", as may be experienced in response to a traumatic or catastrophic event.

This course includes case studies with discussion summaries and other examples to illustrate the concepts, as well as practical tools such as sample forms and checklists. Quizzes throughout the course and an exam help to measure and encourage learning.
