Psychosocial Hazards for Workers
A comprehensive training program focusing on employee responsibility in creating a positive work environment.
Psychosocial illness is more prevalent than many people realise, and it will impact all of us at some stage in our lives. It might be a friend, a family member or a work colleague who is experiencing mental health issues.
In the workplace, now more than ever, there's a focus on the psychosocial hazards that can create a risk to health and safety. As such, state and federal authorities have been gradually updating their health and safety regulations.
