Psychosocial safety

This program provides an overview of these new legal requirements and translates them into practical guidance for preventing psychosocial risks at an organisational level.

What makes our training stand out? 

Psychosocial risks impact an employee’s mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, however these risks are hard to measure in comparison to physical risks.

Our brand-new program on psychosocial risks challenges this notion to better equip leaders with the practical skills to support employees and foster a healthier workplace. We believe at its core, a workplace culture that prioritises safety and health builds a thriving workforce.

Using our signature Workplace Reality Theatre training methodology, participants receive feedback from our psychologist on how to assess issues appropriately and implement techniques, support and resolution strategies.
