What is PAS 1010:2011?
PAS 1010 gives practical guidance on the management of psychosocial risks in work environments. These risks at work can be a major cause of stress, and with stress affecting the mental and physical well being of over 40 million workers in the European Union each year, PAS 1010 is a good investment to improve management techniques and overall company performance. This brand-new BSI standard sets the benchmark for psychosocial risk assessment and management, and helps assessors to address this area of health and safety more effectively.
How does it work?
PAS 1010 starts by giving an overview of psychosocial risk management and its policies and key principles, before demonstrating how to implement this process. The standard also specifies how to monitor performance, do best practice management reviews and develop the right policies to minimise work-related stress and improve the overall conditions of employment for everyone.

What is a PAS?
A Publicly Available Specification (PAS) is a sponsored fast-track standard driven by the needs of the client organizations and developed according to guidelines set out by BSI. Key stakeholders are brought together to collaboratively produce a BSI-endorsed PAS that has all the functionality of a British Standard for the purposes of creating management systems, product benchmarks and codes of practice. After two years, the PAS is reviewed and a decision is made as to whether it should be taken forward to become a formal British Standard.
A wide range of PAS documents are available to buy in the BSI Shop, many as instant downloads. Some are available free.
