This article reports that, in 2002, a major new awareness initiative on preventing work-related stress has been launched by the Health and Safety Executive of Great Britain. The initiative takes the form of a full media advertising campaign, supporting materials, leaflets, action line and guidelines on how to prevent work-related stress. This is hoped to raise awareness among all members in Great Britain. Initially aimed at public sector workers where levels of reported incidence of stress are highest, a series of advertisements will advise managers of schools, hospitals, police and emergency services on steps to take in preventing the condition. The initiative will also help managers pave the way for next year's introduction of the first management, standards on stress in the workplace.
