In this episode, we are joined Sarah Waters, Professor of French Studies at the University of Leeds, to look at a study, published by University of Leeds and Hazards Campaign, which calls on the HSE to monitor, regulate and ultimately prevent workplace suicides.
It stems from a Research England-funded study into a selection of suicide cases and found that employee suicides are still largely treated as an individual mental health problem that has no direct relevance to work or the workplace.
Prof Waters says: “The aim of the study was to look very closely at some of the work-related causal factors that might lead to suicide, and to look at some of the causal connections between suicide and work in the UK context.”
