Psychological Health & Safety

- Psychosocial Risk & Control Assessment©

Rachel's Psychosocial Risk & Control Assessment© combines WHS legislative and regulatory requirements and guidance, people risk theory and research from the human sciences, particularly brain-science, to provide a robust risk and control assessment. The results of this assessment are used to identify gaps, risk exposures and inform the strategic roadmap to best-practice psychosocial safety, helping to ensure your organisation is compliant with relevant Work/Occupational Health and Safety legislation and regulations.    

On 16 September 2022, the NSW Government introduced amendments to the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2017 by passing the Work Health and Safety Amendment Regulation 2022 (Regulation). Other States are reviewing their regulations. This Regulation came into effect on 1 October 2022. It requires a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) to take proactive steps to manage psychosocial risks in the workplace.  It reflects a broader shift in the minimum standards expected of employers in managing psychological risks and protecting against psychological harm in the workplace and support mental health and wellbeing. Sources of psychological harm are broad and now explicitly include harm resulting from sexual harassment and bullying.
