||To evaluate employers' attitudes towards work-related stress and to establish whether they are taking action to reduce the risk of its occurrence, 1,600 organizations of all sizes across a range of industry sectors were interviewed by phone, using a structured computer-based questionnaire. One hundred follow-up interviews were conducted with organizations that had implemented programmes to address work-related stress. Almost 90% of the respondents agreed that stress could cause occupational diseases, and 80% felt that stress should be controlled in the same way as other occupational safety and health issues. Larger organizations are more likely to be taking active steps to reduce occupational stress. However, in most cases, there are no clear frameworks and the benefits and associated costs are not evaluated.
