Summary

The People at Work psychosocial risk assessment tool provides a way for workplaces to identify their psychosocial risks, benchmark them and track improvements over time – for free! It helps identify key psychosocial hazards in the workplace and provides guidance on practical ways to manage them. It was developed in collaboration with Australian WHS regulators and leading researchers. This free risk assessment tool helps workplaces better identify and manage work-related risks to psychological health and compare themselves to other workplaces. The benefits of a systematic approach to psychological health include decreases in work-related injuries, illnesses, claims, absenteeism and turnover, and results in increases in engagement, productivity, job satisfaction and attraction of top talent. Positive psychological and physical health, worker satisfaction and greater business efficiencies can be assisted through good psychosocial risk assessments and effective design and management of work. The People at Work tool is easy to use and includes supporting resources for businesses to work through and interpret their results
