Stress Risk Management from Aon


"Job stress in Ireland has doubled over 5 years"

Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) research, funded by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA), has found that job stress among employees doubled from 8% in 2010 to 17% in 2015.

Impact of Stress on the Employer

Job stress is becoming a more important issue in the Irish workplace. Employers need to manage these risks to prevent the significant individual and organisational costs of stress-related illness.

The report highlights the importance for Irish businesses to have policies in place to deal with job stress among. Under health and safety legislation employers have a duty of care to protect employees against any personal injury to mental health arising from job stress.
