Mind Your Head Project - Year one report

Aims to raise awareness about mental health hazards including the impact of isolated work, high job demands and violent events so that they’re treated the same as physical workplace safety issues.


Project aims

  • Raise the priority of mental health and safety to sit equal to treatment of physical health and safety.
  • Educate and develop workers, Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs), managers and leaders to understand work-related mental health risk factors and the relationship with workplace health and safety.
  • Design tools and resources for workplaces to create mentally safe systems of work.
  • Facilitate engagement with workers, HSRs, managers and leaders to work together to create mentally healthy work.
  • Review and analyse the interventions to determine best practice and create a community that learns from each other.
