Psychosocial Hazards – Australia

Product Description

A compliance training course for managers and general staff

Employers now have a duty to provide a psychologically safe workplace for their employees

All workers are also responsible for contributing to a positive and supportive workplace culture, as work Health and Safety laws now emphasise the psychosocial risks and hazards that can threaten a person’s wellbeing.

Each person’s work involves a unique set of psychosocial hazards that puts them at risk to poor mental and physical health. These risks can arise out of how a job is designed, the social interactions the job requires and the environment where the work is performed.

Employers are now required to proactively address these psychosocial risks. This comprehensive and succinct one-module course complements our Work Health and Safety training, by providing learners with the tools to identify and manage common psychosocial hazards at work. Environmental stressors and inherent risks of work are outlined, and scenario-based learning gives learners the practical skills to address psychosocial hazards and support the welfare of those in the workplace.

The psychosocial hazards compliance training course also explores the four-step risk mitigation process, and outlines what is ‘reasonably practicable’ when attempting to eliminate or minimise risks to workplace health and safety.

Who should do this training?

This psychosocial hazard compliance training is essential for employers and employees. Everyone has a responsibility to contribute to a safe workplace and to identify the environmental and social aspects of work that can give rise to psychological (as well as physical) injury.
