In this session we will explore the current suite of approaches to workplace mental health, understand why a focus on building individual resilience is insufficient, and demonstrate how to apply a hazard identification and risk management process to psychological health and safety. Joelle will provide a practical, step-by-step guide to the process of psychosocial risk management, within the context of ISO 45003 and the new Model WHS Regulations.
