IS PSYCHOSOCIAL SAFETY ON YOUR ORGANISATION’S RADAR?
Safe Work Month is being celebrated during the month of October. Throughout Australia, workers, organisations, unions, regulators and others will engage in a range of strategies and events to highlight the importance of health and safety practices in Australian organisations. TMS is taking this opportunity to highlight the importance of the emerging practice area of Psychosocial Safety.
Join us for an engaging and informative breakfast seminar on “Psychosocial Safety: Are You Managing the Risks?” Psychosocial safety pertains to health and safety risks that arise from an individual’s interaction with their social environment, resulting in both physical and psychological harm. Australian health and safety legislation requires employers actively protect the physical and psychological health and safety of employees. Has your organisation taken reasonably practicable steps to mitigate psychosocial risks within your work environment?
Our experienced presenters will facilitate an interactive session focused upon the following:
- An overview of psychosocial safety and key risk areas, including fatigue, bullying, stress and violence
- An understanding of common psychosocial hazards, such as work design, workload, low autonomy, role conflict, lack of organisational support, poor leadership, and poor culture
- An outline of relevant legislative requirements
- An understanding of how to integrate psychosocial safety management into existing safety management systems
- Practical guidance on how organisations can effectively identify, assess, control and monitor the psychosocial risks
