Going loco?

It was only a matter of time before stress at work became reclassified as psychosocial risk and the British Standards Institution developed s standard for it.

Known as PAS 1010 (Publicly Available Specification) Guidance it covers the management of psychological risks in the workplace. More commonly seen as stress that apparently affects the mental health of over 40 million workers in the EU each year, it is thought to cost businesses more than €20 million per year.

The standard is due for release soon - you can register your interest here:  http://www.bsigroup.com/en/sectorsandservices/Forms/PAS-1010---register-interest/. Don't get too stressed waiting for it though.
