Page 1: Introduction
QMU is committed to protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, and we acknowledge that these extraordinary circumstances and rapidly changing situations can be stressful for staff.
This stress survey has been replicated from the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) Stress Indicator Tool and developed for use on the Online Survey platform by the Health and Safety Team. It is fully supported by the Stress Management Working Group, Senior Leadership Team and Trade Union representatives.
The purpose of the survey is to collect staff feedback on your experiences of stress at work within the last 12 months. The survey is split into 2 sections; HSE Indicator Tool Questions and About You. It should only take approximately 15 mins to complete.
Your responses will be completely anonymous, confidential and at no point will you be asked for your name. We have done this to encourage honest responses in complete confidence.
A report, including summarised survey results will be written by the Health and Safety Team and shared with the Stress Management Working Group to confirm the results, decide what the key issues are, and reach an agreement on appropriate action.
The Senior Leadership team has committed to responding to issues raised in this survey and a response to results will be provided to all staff.
