Summary
"Working in a stressful environment not only increases the risk of physical illness or distress, but also increases the likelihood of workplace accidents. While legislation provides some guidelines for risk assessment of physical hazards, there remains limited guidance on the risks of psychosocial hazards, such as occupational stress." "Managing the Risk of Workplace Stress takes a risk management approach to stress evaluation in the workplace, offering practical guidelines for the audit, assessment and mitigation of workplace stressors. Based on original research findings, it provides a comprehensive source of theoretical and practical information for students and practitioners alike. With its up-to-date approach to a fascinating area of study, Managing the Risk of Workplace stress is key reading for all students of organizational psychology and those responsible for workplace safety."--BOOK JACKET
