Managing psychosocial risks at work

A person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) in Western Australia has a responsibility to manage psychosocial risks in the workplace.
{{ tag.label }} {{ tag.label }} $vuetify.icons.faTimes

A person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) in Western Australia has a duty of care to employees by identifying and managing psychosocial risks when they are present in the workplace.

Psychosocial risks take many forms, but are considered to cause psychological harm arising from factors such as: traumatic events at work, overwhelming job demands, a lack of role clarity, bullying, isolation and more. A PCBU must manage psychosocial risks in the same way they manage physical safety risks. That means taking steps to eliminate psychosocial risks as much as reasonably practicable and, if elimination is not possible, implementing measures to minimise risk so far as is practicable. 

This resource addresses steps PCBUs can take to control psychosocial risk and outlines what businesses must do to comply with compliance requirements. PCBUs may need to undertake a training course to be able to deal with psychosocial hazards in the workplace. 

Provided in the resource are links to various resources that are available to PCBUs to help them maintain mentally healthy workplaces and meet their WHS obligations.
