CIEH Level 1 Award in Stress Awareness

Stress Awareness is a new stand-alone Level 1 qualification, which complements the CIEH Foundation Certificate in Health and Safety in the Workplace programme.


It is aimed at raising awareness of likely sources of work-related stress, the range of symptoms and effects it can cause and the options available for its control. While the level of the qualification is aimed at general workers, it would provide a suitable introduction to the issue of work-related stress for more senior staff.

Successful completion will prepare students to look carefully at their own work activities and contribute to the development of strategies to combat work-related stress, in co-operation with their managers and supervisors.

This unit of study can be delivered as a stand-alone qualification and there are no specific pre-requisites.


Personnel at all levels of the organisation who may be affected by stress within the workplace.
