All employers with five of more employees have a legal duty to undertake stress risk
assessments, this legal duty relates to the Management of Health and Safety at Work
The Health and Safety Executive has provided a ‘best practice’ means of achieving
compliance in their publication ‘Stress Management Standards’ which suggest that

HSE Stress Management Standards Questionnaire
Most employers use the HSE questionnaire as a base for their own employee health

We are able to undertake full analysis to these standards providing HSE standard
reports plus enhanced reporting tools that enable users to:
compare different demographic groups and sub-groups,
undertake detailed analysis on specific questions, and
build ‘queries’ using results from different questions and demographic groups to
a produce a matrix so ‘stress hot-spots’ can be easily identified, so enabling targeted
solutions to minimise resource costs.
Old Questionnaire / Survey Data
We can take old data from previous surveys and consultations and put this into an
advanced analysis tool alongside your new data which enables you to compare previous
results against your latest results to monitor change and improvement against individual
questions, stressors and benchmarks.
Identifying Bullying and Discrimination
We can offer you advanced analysis tools which enables you to set up queries that
combine the results from a number of questions to give a more accurate picture of
the true situation. For example, you may wish to combine the results of HSE questions

This can be an invaluable tool for identifying discrimination and diversity issues
before they become a legal problem.

You are free to add as many questions as you wish to your survey / questionnaire.
Our copyrighted tools can be set up to expand to provide you with almost unlimited
