Topic:  Is Stress a Workplace Safety Hazard?

Speaker:  Bruce Hensley, MD,  St. Vincent Charity Hospital

It’s easy to tell whether a worker is wearing a hard hat, safety goggles or other piece of personal protective equipment. However, an intangible such as a person’s stress level isn’t always easy to identify. Warning signs exist, trouble concentrating, fatigue, anxiety or irritability, alcohol or drug use, appetite changes, workplace incidents and even workplace violence. 

Learn to recognize stress and Dr. Hensley will report on the most current strategies on how supervisors can help reduce job stress – or prevent it from building – as related to safety issues.


 About the Speaker:  Dr. Hensley’s practice is dedicated to helping employers effectively and efficiently return employees to work, while ensuring proper care of the employee and promoting a safe, productive work environment. Dr. Hensley has practiced for over 22 years as an Occupational Medicine physician in a number of practice settings including experience as Medical Director in the manufacturing setting, as well as extended experience as Medical Review Officer of a multi-facility hospital based Occupational Health Program. He currently serves as Medical Director for Mercy Work Health and Safety as well as St. Vincent Charity’s Occupational Health Program.
