Creating Mentally Healthy Workplaces
Mental stress workers’ compensation claims tend to be lengthy and, as such, the most expensive type of claim. A typical claim pays out over $23,000. Absenteeism, tardiness, sick leave, declining performance, impaired concentration and avoidance of work can be additional business costs from psychosocial risks in the workplace.
Psychosocial hazards at work include work factors that can lead to poor psychological health and poor organisational performance. Understanding the link between these risk factors and psychological injury or illness is a key motivation for determining the most appropriate steps to mitigate the risks.
This course will help you:
• Know the risk factors for psychosocial stress
• Understand the impact of psychosocial hazards on employees
• Explain the steps to mitigate or eliminate the risks
The workshop is facilitated by psychologists with significant workplace health and safety expertise.
