Do Your Leaders Know How To Minimize Psychosocial Risks?
Unfortunately, every job involves some psychosocial risks that can increase work-related stress, harm people’s mental and physical health, and if prolonged, can lead to burnout. As a growing list of countries advocate – and in Australia regulate – workplaces to proactively address psychosocial (emotional and social) hazards, leaders need to be able to recognize and minimize these risks.
But how can you pull this off practically given all the responsibilities your leaders are already juggling? The good news is our world-leading team of workplace wellbeing researchers have partnered with MinterEllison’s employment lawyers to do the hard work for you by creating ‘E-Learning For Minimizing Psychosocial Risks’.
2 Hours Of Easy-To-Understand Psychosocial Hazard Training
Engaging, evidence-based training that breaks down the legalese into simple actionable ideas leaders can immediately apply. Available in short video or audio formats that can be enjoyed anywhere, over four modules we walk step-by-step through the fourteen Safe Work Australia psychosocial hazards to ensure your leaders know how to spot potential risks and effectively minimize any harmful experiences.
4 Self-Assessment Quizzes And Case Studies
Leaders immediately apply their learning and test their knowledge about each of the psychosocial hazards through four self-check assessments – one at the end of each module. When the training is complete, leaders can further test their understanding by spotting the hazards and recommending actions in three real-world case studies. All assessment tools provide leaders with immediate feedback to reinforce and embed their learning about how to confidently identify and act to minimize psychosocial hazards for their team. Upon successful competition, each leader receives a Psychosocial Risk Certificate.
14 Ready To Action Cheat Sheets & Posters
Leaders can download and share easy-to-action cheat sheets summarizing what to look for and how to respond for each psychosocial hazard, so they can keep everything they’ve learned in easy reach. In addition, beautifully designed digital posters are provided to visually capture all the hazards on a page with clear descriptions to make them easy to remember.
