Work is important to all of us. It is a protective factor for poor mental health – if you are working, you tend to have better mental health outcomes tied to purposes, meaning and connection. Work can also be a contributor to poor mental health. Things we might experience at work such as stress change, working relationships, conflict, boredom and so on have the potential to present as a psychosocial hazard for individuals and the broader team. The Code of Practice: Managing psychosocial hazards at work (‘the Code’) was developed by SafeWork NSW as an approved Code of Practice under the WHS Act. The Code applies to all work and workplaces covered by the WHS Act. The Code provides valuable guidance to workers and workplaces, to bring psychosocial hazards into focus, assess risks and invest in safety beyond the physical. NewPsych’s session on psychosocial hazards is designed to bring psychosocial hazards into focus, by training leaders to identify, assess and establish protective mechanisms against risks, to minimise the psychosocial hazards we see in the workplace.
