Stress Prevention and Management
The Health and Safety Executive defines stress as "the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demand placed upon them". Work places demands and pressures on everyone.
Appropriate amounts can stimulate and motivate but if demands and pressures are too great they can induce mental and physical feelings and manifestations commonly known as stress.
The University recognises the importance of the prevention and management of stress in the workplace and has developed a number of health and wellbeing initiatives. Further information (link for University of Plymouth staff members only).
