The nature of most workplaces has changed dramatically over the last few years as work has shifted online and out of the office. This poses a new set of challenges for employers, with a particular focus on mental health.

While organisations generally have a clear overview and plan to manage physical hazards in the workplace, most are underprepared or less confident in ensuring a psychologically safe work environment. How are risks and hazards identified and how can they be better managed from both a preventative and management standpoint?

Join special counsel Gemma Sharp as she takes you through the health and safety obligations your business has to workers, with a deep dive into the background of the recently released psychosocial safety requirements, and a look at tips and strategies for compliance.

The topics for discussion will include:

  • understanding your workplace health and safety obligations as an employer
  • duties of officers, workers and other persons
  • consultation and representation rights and requirements
  • consequences of unsafe work for companies and directors
  • understanding investigations, enforcement measures and prosecutions
  • an overview of current industrial manslaughter laws
  • limiting the risk of psychosocial hazards in your organisation
  • recent changes to the Work Health and Safety Act
  • psychological safety.

We hope you can join us.
