Psychosocial Hazards – Recognise the Signs

A psychosocial hazard is anything that could cause psychological harm (e.g. harm someone’s mental health). Common psychosocial hazards at work include: High job demands, lack of support, inadequate reward and recognition and bullying.

Under WHS model laws a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) must eliminate psychosocial risks, or if that is not reasonably practicable, minimise them so far as is reasonably practicable.
Psychosocial Risk Assessment assists in identifying hazards and appropriate controls to meet WHS standards.
