GREEN MEP: CUT NUMBERS ON INCAPACITY BENEFITS BY ADDRESSING STRESS AT WORK

Jean Lambert, London’s Green MEP, has called on the UK Government to
address the problem of stress in the work place, as part of the Welfare
Green Paper to be published tomorrow.

Jean, who is due to release a new report, ‘I Must Work Harder? Britain
and the Working Time Directive’ next month, warned that the way to
reduce the number of people claiming incapacity benefits is to focus on
improving people’s health and not by increasing Doctors pay. Jean
commented: “In everything we have heard about the numbers claiming
incapacity benefits and ways to reduce it, no one has addressed one of
the key contributory causes – circumstances at work. British people work
some of the longest hours in Europe leading to high stress levels and
ultimately serious health implications that are preventing people from
working. In 2004 / 2005 around half a million people felt that their job
was making them ill and this number continues to rise.

“The problem is that the UK’s exemptions from the Working Time
Directive, drafted to ensure a high standard of protection of workers’
health and safety with regard to working time, means that employees can
voluntarily work above the 48 hour week and the long hours continue to
impact on our health.

“The priority for the UK Government should be people’s health and not
simply benefit targets. The costs associated with poor work health are
detrimental to economic and individual development. By addressing the
causes of the ‘sick note culture’ the Government will inadvertently save
money without having to bribe Doctors to cut the number of exemption
certificates they write."
