Abstract This report provides examples of how sources of work stress were identified and managed in a number of hospital settings. Over the course of two years, five case groups, containing staff involved in a variety of jobs (both direct care and non-direct care) were followed. An account of the stress management process using these case study examples is provided, including information about how a number of problems are being tackled in hospital settings, highlighting the benefits that good management practices can have in terms of working conditions and staff well-being. The evidence from these case studies demonstrates that that risk management can be a powerful tool for dealing with sources of work stress.
