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.

Contact Well Minds Work (email: [email protected] – phone: 0421 798 891) for more information on identifying Psychosocial Hazards in your workplace today!

Well Minds Work Workshop in Focus – MONA People, Culture and Safety Teams

Well Minds Work has already had a busy start to 2023 conducting psychosocial risk assessments as well as mental health and wellbeing workshops with prominent organisations in Tasmania!

Last Tuesday Well Minds Work collaborated with the People and Culture and Safety Teams at MONA, completing half a day of training on identifying signs and symptoms of stress, psychoeducation on the stress bucket model and increasing evidence-based coping strategies, as well as individual assessment of self-care needs.

We thoroughly enjoyed the enthusiasm the team at MONA teams brought to the day, which resulted in many productive conversations.

Please get in touch if you or your team are interested in engaging in some similar training! 🧠
