Stress the biggest problem faced by British workers, TUC finds

STRESS is the biggest problem faced by workers in the UK, with over 70 per cent of those surveyed saying it was the main workplace concern.

The 12th biennial TUC survey of workplace health and safety representative is published today in the run-up to World Mental Health Day next Wednesday.

Other concerns identified were bullying, harassment, slips, trips and falls, followed by violence and threats.

TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “Employers and managers need to do more to reduce risks and provide support to employees struggling to cope.”

She highlighted the fact that unionised workplaces were safer workplaces.
