Stress Awareness Training

Our stress awareness programme develops understanding of stress for staff at all levels of your organisation. The training is designed to be relative to a customer’s requirements, enabling us to provide this training as a stand-alone 1/2 day workshop format, or in a tailored 2 hour seminar.

This training is an excellent source of information and practical learning. The workshop utilises a variety of interactive methods to introduce the latest scientific research and HSE stress management standards, enabling attendees to contribute to the organisation’s overall stress management plan.
