Demystifying psychosocial risk
 
The emphasis on psychosocial risk in the workplace is fairly new in the area of health, safety and wellbeing. Although there has been a huge amount of research on it globally and locally, there is limited understanding on how to assess and manage it.
The subject will be discussed by occupational health specialist Dr Natasha Lazareski, who specialises in this area, on Thursday, 16 February 2017 at the Central Safety Group lunch.
She will outline what psychosocial risk is and how to assess it, and provide insight into some of the latest developments in this field.
Taking action can improve the workplace environment and culture by reducing things such as bullying, conflict, complaints, absenteeism, poor teamwork and mental health issues.
Natasha will talk about some of the most powerful and effective things organisations can do to control the impact of work-related stress and improve the mental wellbeing of their employees.
