Calculating the cost of work-related stress and psychosocial risks

Work-related stress is expensive.

Tackling stress and psychosocial risks can be viewed as too costly, but the reality is that it costs more to ignore them.

Stress affects performance and leads to absence from work. If prolonged it may result in serious health problems such as cardiovascular or musculoskeletal diseases.

All this comes at a cost.

This report summarises the studies focusing on calculating costs of work-related stress and psychosocial risks.

The main costs for individuals relate to health impairment, lower income and reduced quality of life. Organisations are affected by costs related to absenteeism, presenteeism, reduced productivity or high staff turnover.

Health care costs and poorer business outcomes ultimately affect national economies and society.
