Managing Psychosocial Risk in Public Sector Workplaces
March 22 - March 23
As the world of work is rapidly transforming through automation, technological advancement and global competition, job demands are shifting from being physical in nature to more cognitively demanding. While established organisations have decades of experience in managing physical hazards, many are less prepared to confidently ensure a psychologically safe work environment. Never has this been clearer than during the COVID-19 pandemic, as work has shifted online and out of the office, bringing a new set of mental health challenges.
The burden is on organisations to understand and effectively address emerging psychosocial risks and hazards. This requires tailored approaches that take stock of factors including job design, management contexts, and all aspects of the work environment that have the potential to cause harm.
Join leading researcher & consultant psychologist Dr Tessa Bailey to unpack and explore case studies utilising the Psychosocial Safety Climate (PSC) Framework for best practice psychosocial risk assessment and intervention design.
