Psychosocial hazards under new legislation
The new workplace health and safety legislation was adopted nationally in December 2022. All workplaces must now consider psychosocial hazards. Most jobs involve some psychosocial hazards that can harm workers’ mental health.
Amanda has the knowledge, strategies and experience to ensure employers and others meet their OSH responsibilities by managing psychosocial hazards and risks. This minimises organisational disruptions and the significant costs of work-related harm to safety and health, as well as improving performance and productivity.
Psychosocial hazards can create stress. Stress is not an injury, but if it becomes frequent, prolonged or severe, it can cause psychological and physical harm -- such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and sleep disorders. And in some cases, could also lead to self-harm and suicidal thoughts.
