Why You Should Attend

Psychosocial Risk Management Excellence

As the world of work is rapidly transforming through automation, technological advancement and global competition, job demands are shifting from being physical in nature to more cognitively demanding. While established organisations have decades of experience in managing physical hazards, many are less prepared to confidently ensure a psychologically safe work environment. Never has this been clearer than during the COVID-19 pandemic, as work has shifted online and out of the office, bringing a new set of mental health challenges.

Workplaces need to understand and effectively address these emerging psychosocial risks and hazards. This training will provide you with the evidence-based tools and knowledge to confidently take action to create a more mentally healthy and safe workplace.
Employee Health and Wellbeing is on the agenda like never before. In this interactive, evidence-informed workshop, we will
explore tools and resources to assess and mitigate psychosocial risk, learn about best practice frameworks for the creation and maintenance of a mental health strategy, and increase understanding about high impact interventions.
