AOP launches guide for healthy, low-stress optical practices

The Association of Optometrists (AOP), in collaboration with optical employers, has produced a best-practice guide aimed at helping both employers and employees build and maintain healthy workplaces.

The guide has been developed in response to findings from the AOP’s 2017 health and wellbeing survey in which several factors were uncovered as contributing to workplace stress for optometrists. Elements such as working under time and commercial pressures, an increasingly complex workload, and a fear of litigation were all highlighted.
