InMotion April 2024 – Introduction to Workplace Psychosocial Hazards and Risks

Workplace psychosocial hazards and risks encompass a wide array of factors that can significantly impact employees’ mental health and well-being. From excessive workloads and interpersonal conflicts to bullying and harassment, these hazards can lead to profound injuries with far-reaching consequences. The toll of such injuries extends beyond individual suffering, affecting overall productivity, organisational culture, and workers’ compensation insurance premiums.

This InMotion explores key aspects to deepen understanding of psychosocial hazards and risks in the work environment, including:

  • Legislative provisions;
  • Potential consequences of unmanaged psychosocial risks; and
  • Identifying and managing psychosocial hazards and risks.
