Developing Psychologically Safe and Healthy Workplaces
Across industries, there is a high level of awareness of workplace safety and WHS obligations and the benefits of ensuring a safe physical work environment. However, there is far less awareness when it comes to identifying and mitigating psychosocial risk factors and developing a psychologically safe and healthy workplace. With increasing psychological injury claims, escalating complex workplace issues associated with mental health, and huge costs associated with the failure to identify risks and provide early intervention in mental health matters, employers are required to make Psychological Health and Safety a priority. The Developing Psychologically Safe & Healthy Workplaces workshop provides a framework to help organisations not only comply with the Work Health & Safety obligations but also realise performance productivity, reputation, employee engagement, and retention benefits associated with a psychologically healthy workplace. Participants will gain an understanding of the practicalities of identifying psychosocial risk and opportunities and options for intervention and prevention, across primary, secondary and tertiary levels. Utilising evidence-based principles and contemporary research, the workshop provides participants with practical tools and strategies which can be immediately applied to specific teams, departments or across the organisation.
