Safe Work Australia releases new WHS resources for managing work-related psychosocial hazards

SafeWork Australia has released new model regulations and a code of practice to help prevent psychological harm at work.

The federal agency says the model WHS laws now include regulations on psychosocial hazards.

Safe Work Australia Chief Executive Officer Michelle Baxter said that “under work health and safety laws, PCBUs have a positive duty to do everything they reasonably can to prevent exposure to psychosocial hazards and risks.

“Psychosocial hazards are anything at work that may cause psychological harm.

“They can come from the way work is designed and managed, the working environment, or behaviours including bullying, harassment, discrimination, aggression and violence.”
