Abstract This leaflet outlines the Health and Safety Executive's Management Standards approach to work-related stress (see CIS 07-242) and gives practical advice on how to implement them. The standards are based on the HSE's "Five steps to risk assessment" (see CIS 07-10): identify the hazards; decide who may be harmed and how; evaluate the risk; record the findings; monitor and review. Although the risk assessment process takes a collective, proactive approach, it also takes account of individual differences and problems.
