They believe that by locating the problem companies can redesign specifics areas to reduce stress level, and then evaluate the issues to determine if it is producing lasting effects. First, for an individual to reduce the risk they need to be aware of the problem. In addition, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 even requires employers to conduct regular assessments of the risk of stress-related illness as a result of people’s work (Maynard). The Health and Safety Executive has a similar approach to assessment that includes identifying the hazards, deciding who might be harmed and how, evaluating the risk by identifying what action you are already taking, determining whether or not it is enough, deciding what further action is required, recording the assessment 's significant findings, and reviewing the assessment at suitable intervals (Maynard).

Gennie Professor Kevin Jayne Augusta CIS 462 23 August 2015 Strayer University The purpose of a business impact analysis (BIA) is to assess the impact that a disruptive event would have on an organization. A BIA has three primary goals: determine criticality, estimate maximum downtime and evaluate resource requirements (FFIEC IT Examination Handbook, n.d.). Every critical business function must be identified as well as the impact of a disruption. Non-critical business functions may have a lower priority, but it is equally important to consider interdependencies between departments and functions.
