Welcome to the HSE Stress eBulletin

Today's issue introduces the HSE's first annual conference, which is taking place in London next week. As part of the launch of the HSE health priority and sector plans there is to be an increased focus on health, both physical and mental, and a series of campaigns are being planned to promote action so your staff can "Go Home Healthy".

HSE annual conference

Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre - 18th September

HSE's first external annual conference will be taking place on 18 September; the conference will formally launch the HSE's Health Priority and Sector plans.

The all-day event, which will take place at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London, is part of an approach to communicate with stakeholders and showcase HSE, its priorities and recent developments. Over 300 senior representatives and key decision makers from all parts of industry have registered to attend – including a mix of new and existing contacts.

The conference day will include several elements:         

  • a 'Leadership in workplace health' breakfast session;
  • main conference speeches and group activities including a 'Think Tank';
  • an experience zone; and
  • the first annual H&S lecture about innovation – 'The internet of things: the challenges for H&S professionals'

The Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work, Penny Mordaunt MP, who has responsibility for health and safety at work will be the keynote speaker.


'Go home healthy' campaign

During the event we will be launching a new national campaign 'Go Home Healthy' to promote our commitment to tackling ill-health and our health and work programme.

The campaign currently has three priority areas – occupational lung disease, stress & mental health and musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

After the initial launch, there will be three targeted behaviour change campaigns for these priority areas and the first will be on lung disease in November.

The purpose of the 'Go Home Healthy' campaign is to:

  • build understanding to positively influence behaviour and reduce ill health and injuries in the workplace;
  • positively influence employer engagement so they act on the part they play in improving work-related health and wellbeing;
  • improve attitudes to health and safety in the workplace by working collaboratively with others to create and galvanise 'norming' of good health practices.


Re-designed HSE Stress website

We told you some time ago about the ongoing work re-designing of the HSE website. We are now at the point where we are intending to launch the new version.

The new site has tried to make the guidance more focussed and relevant and has allowed us to do some decluttering. The intention was to clearly delineate the guidance on work related stress – what stress is, how to recognise it, what employers are obliged to do to comply and the benefits of doing so – from the Management Standards information, instruction and guidance. The intention was to make the generic work related stress material more accessible and more relevant to employers and employees who are trying to get more information or clarity about whether they have a problem and that the problem is work related.

We'd be very appreciative of any feedback you may have – the e:community and 'contact us' sections are still there so feel free to let us know what you think – especially if you think we've taken something off that you found useful or you think we've missed the opportunity to add something.
