Health and Wellbeing Queensland have launched a new Healthy Workplaces website in partnership with Office of Industrial Relations, Public Service Commission, Queensland Mental Health Commission and Queensland Health to share knowledge and resources and collaborate on future initiatives.
The recent New Zealand Psychosocial Survey assessed a wide range of psychosocial factors in NZ workers using the Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire (COPSOQ). Bullying was the most common hostile act reported. The most common risks were the speed and intensity of work, the need to conceal feelings from others and workload. Protective factors were security over working conditions, sense of community at work, role clarity and meaning of work.
People at Work is a psychosocial risk assessment process. It is Australia’s only validated and evidence based psychosocial risk assessment survey tool with benchmarking that measures psychosocial hazards and factors. People at Work can help you comply with your health and safety duties, better manage work-related psychosocial hazards and factors and prevent psychological harm.
