Psychological Health & Safety Management in Focus

In June 2024, we brought together a panel of workplace risk, psychological safety and management system specialists to explore and discuss one of the most challenging safety management issues Australian employers face – psychological safety management.

Openly sharing their knowledge, expertise and experience, together, our panellists and the audience discussed and explored: 

  • The frameworks and measures other organisations are using to manage psychological safety.

  • What a best practice approach to identifying hazards, assessing risks, implementing controls and corrective actions looks like. 

  • The challenges and strategies for overcoming them that different organisations have applied in designing, implementing and evolving psychosocial safety management systems.
