New National Guidelines in the Management of Work Related Psychological Health and Safety

 

Australian workplaces spend close to $6 billion annually in lost productivity due to poor psychological safety.

Safe work Australia has published national guidelines to support building a psychologically healthy and safe work environment. This Guide describes a systematic practical approach to managing work-related psychological health and safety.

Most elements of this systematic approach are required under work health and safety (WHS)[1] or workers’ compensation laws in all Australian jurisdictions. This Guide also highlights the importance of positive psychological work health and safety and how this can lead to a reduction in both psychological and physical injuries.
