The Burnt Chef Project releases stress guide for hospitality workers
In 2020/21 stress, depression and anxiety accounted for 50% of all work-related ill health cases. Work-related stress affects a person’s health, increases the chance of workplace injuries occurring, and reduces performance and productivity within the workplace.
Kris Hall, chief executive of The Burnt Chef Project, said "Our industry is facing more pressures than ever before, yet we’re not always equipped to deal with the issues this may bring to individuals within our team. We’ve developed this publication to assist employers and persons with duties under Occupational Health and Safety laws to comply with those laws in relation to work-related stress in the workplace.
“With work-related stress affecting such a high proportion of our team's wellbeing, it’s time to put the resources in place to support our team's wellbeing and arm our managers with the tools they need to help their staff thrive, not just survive. Our free guide has been compiled with information, knowledge and expertise within the field of hospitality workplace wellbeing and is designed to help employers start implementing procedures to tackle work-related stress and its impact on both wellbeing and performance.”
