Talking Toolkit aims to reduce work stress

Stressed out

A Talking Toolkit specifically for NHS service providers has been launched by the Health and Safety Executive with the aim of reducing work-related stress. 

The toolkit focuses on how managers can start and conduct a range of conversations covering issues of demands, control, support, relationships, role, and change.

Designed to be used in conjunction with an organisation’s overall wellbeing approach, it also includes:

  • conversation templates
  • sign posting to further support and information. 

There are separate toolkits for England, Scotland and Wales:
