Work related stress

Request

For each year since 2010:

- how many staff have taken sick leave due to work-related stress;

- what proportion of the entire workforce is that;

- how many working hours/days have been lost due to work-related stress?

Response

We do not record absences under ‘work-related stress’ so we cannot provide this information.

However, we do record absences related to stress, anxiety or depression. The information given below therefore shows the record of absences related to stress, anxiety, depression or psychological issues. We currently have records from 2011/2012, recording figures for each financial year as follows:

Year

Total number of staff Full Time Equivalent (FTE)

FTE Staff taking Sick Leave attributed to stress,   anxiety, depression or other psychological issues
