Managing Psychosocial Risk

Practical strategies to create a healthy workplace & meet regulatory obligations


The prevalence and cost of poor mental health to organisations is increasing and has attracted global attention to better manage psychosocial factors. Psychosocial Risk Management is a critical strategy in establishing future organisational success in this current landscape.

Since the Boland Review in 2018, efforts to elevate protection of psychological health to the same level as physical health have culminated in significant legislative and regulatory change. This includes the new codes of practice and duty of care released across various states for PCBUs to better manage the risk of psychosocial hazards at work and to provide workplaces that eliminate or minimise risks to mental ill-health as far as is reasonably practicable. It is, however, not as simple as inserting psychosocial hazards into traditional models established to manage risks to physical safety.

In this masterclass, we will explore practical approaches to implementing a Psychosocial Risk Management Framework which will not only allow your organisation to comply with legislative obligations, but genuinely improve the experience of all team members performing their work roles to optimise wellbeing and performance.
