9:00am - 10:00am: Preventing mental injury in the workplace

Mental injury can be hard to identify in the workplace but organisational factors are present everywhere. They range from things such as work demands, relationships with colleagues or how much control someone has over their work.

WorkSafe can help inform and guide you on why these factors are so influential and ways to identify and address them to effectively manage risk of injury in the workplace.

Learn how WorkSafe is approaching the increase in physically injured workers who develop a secondary mental injury. Find out which individuals are most at risk, the risk factors that an employer can look out for and how to respond.

WorkSafe will also outline the supports services available including Occupational Rehabilitation and dedicated psychological resources at WorkSafe Agents.
