As well as minimising the risks associated with physical wellbeing, employers are responsible for protecting the mental health of their employees. This includes stress associated with work.

Mental health issues have increased by 5% in the UK in the last year alone, and with it so have sickness absence rates.  As absence due to a mental health issue can take up to 7.5 times longer to recover from in comparison to physical sickness, businesses are increasingly prioritising the wellbeing of their workforce to ensure productivity and employee happiness is at a high standard.

One of the main issues SME’s (Small and Medium Enterprises) face is the growing costs associated with funding professional mental health and stress awareness courses that offer management and HR teams essential training to support employees through strenuous times.

Phoenix Health & Safety want to support businesses across the UK that may need extra support in helping create a safer working environment for their employees.

By giving away free stress awareness training courses to 250 businesses, Phoenix Health & Safety pledges to make Britain a safer place to work, no matter the industry you work in.
