Workplace stress, mental health focus of new OSHA webpage
Posted November 23, 2022
Workplace stress and mental health are the focus of a new OSHA webpage. Statistics show that workplace stress has been reported to cause 120,000 deaths in the U.S. each year and that 83 percent of U.S. workers suffer from work-related stress. OSHA notes that despite these statistics, the workplace can be a key place for resources, solutions, and activities designed to improve workers’ mental health and well-being.
In addition to providing an overview of stress and mental health challenges, the page offers guidance and tips for employers, training resources, real-world solutions, and outreach materials. Resources also include Getting Started guides for employers, mental health checklists, workplace stress sample survey questions, and a myth buster fact sheet.
