||Investigating the causes of accidents, incidents and unsafe behaviour, including understanding the possible influence of psychological ill-health, has become a priority. This understanding should address both whether experiencing psychological ill-health or stress at work can impact on individuals' safety behaviour and also how the presence of potential sources of psychological ill-health or stress at work may affect safety performance. This report presents evidence to contribute to this understanding, focusing on the relationship between psychological ill-health, stress and safety in a work context. It is based on a literature review, and divided into sections addressing the following topics: prevalence of psychological ill-health and stress; impact of psychological ill-health and stress on behaviour; evidence from accidents; stress and causes of accidents and errors.
