Stress-Related Workplace Injuries and Illnesses on the Rise

Lakewood, Colorado Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Denver, Boulder, and Nearby Areas

Posted: February 28, 2018

As companies downsize and employees’ workloads are substantially increased, stress-related illnesses and injuries are becoming more and more prevalent in the workplace. When there is a conflict between increased job demands and the amount of control an employee has over meeting those demands, stress can become overwhelming. Not only can the employee become physically ill, but their performance can suffer and endanger the health of those around them; they can make judgement errors, become physically unable to carry out certain tasks, and become dangerously distracted.

Because the roots of stress are mental and emotional, it can be difficult to overcome the stigma of perceived weakness. The pressure of performance rules and, without a physical manifestation, managers can ignore problems and attribute issues to laziness or lack of commitment. But stress is real. And dangerously high stress levels can lead to serious and debilitating problems now and in the future.
