The facts about work related stress…

Work related stress, depression and anxiety disorders are defined as a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands placed on them at work.

The latest estimates (2016) from the Labour Force Survey (LFS – Office of National Statistics) show:

  • The total number of cases of work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2015/16 was 488,000 cases, a prevalence rate of 1510 per 100,000 workers. (1.51%)
  • The number of new cases was 224,000, an incidence rate of 690 per 100,000 workers. (0.7%)
  • The total number of working days lost due to this condition in 2015/16 was 11.7 million days. This equated to an average of 23.9 days lost per case.
  • In 2015/16 stress accounted for 37% of all work related ill health cases and 45% of all working days lost due to ill health.
  • Stress is more prevalent in public service industries, such as education; health and social care; and public administration and defence.
  • By occupation, jobs that are common across public service industries (such as healthcare workers; teaching professionals; business, media and public service professionals) show higher levels of stress as compared to all jobs.
  • The main work factors cited by respondents as causing work related stress, depression or anxiety (LFS) were workload pressures, including tight deadlines and too much responsibility and a lack of managerial support.
