From previous BLOGS, we know that workplace stress can easily affect job performance, as it directly influences your body, your thoughts and feelings, and your behaviour. Research has shown that work stress is increasingly associated with depressive disorders and suicide, which ultimately highlights the importance of maintaining a healthy work environment. While it’s obvious that stress has the ability to negatively impact an individual’s mental health, there is a way that you can change your relationship with stress, and even use it as a tool to motivate.

While it’s impossible to completely eradicate workplace injuries, there is a way that your company can take action after an employee injury to help save you time, energy, and money, while still ensuring the wellbeing of your staff.
