In psychosocial safety-driven workplaces, are your wellbeing skills & tools still relevant?
Having spent a year working side by side with HR and OH&S teams implementing psychosocial safety solutions, one thing is clear: your wellbeing skills and tools are more valuable than ever.
But the secret lies in discussing them differently.
Psychosocial safety solutions tend to take a risk management approach, emphasizing hazard identification and the application of technical “controls” to mitigate or eliminate risks. And while this may work for physical hazards, you already know that attempting to “control” emotional and social hazards rarely ends well.
Instead, psychosocial safety solutions need a technical risk management and a human strengths-building approach.
That’s why your wellbeing skills and tools bring enormous value.
