Psychosocial hazards can be just as harmful to workers' health and safety as physical hazards. An understanding of your employer responsibilities is important to safeguard your employees health and safety. In this session we use discuss psychosocial risks in different work contexts, how an employer can identify, assess and control these risks, so far as is reasonably practicable. We will also discuss the use of prevention plans for certain psychosocial risks.
