Why Do I Need Workplace Stress Safety Training?
OSHA doesn’t have a specific standard for stress management training. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”
Because of this requirement, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with excessive amounts of stress. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.
