Managing Psychosocial Hazards in the workplace 

On an average scale, injuries stemming from psychosocial factors at the workplace tend to necessitate lengthier recovery periods, incur higher costs, and demand more extended leaves from work.

Effectively managing the risks associated with psychosocial hazards serves not only to safeguard the well-being of workers but also to mitigate disruptions linked to staff turnover and absenteeism. Importantly, commencing April 1, 2023, federal legislation stated that businesses and employers must adhere to the regulations concerning the management of psychosocial hazards as outlined in the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act).


What are psychosocial hazards?

At the workplace, psychosocial hazards refer to situations or aspects of a role that might trigger a stress response in a worker.

While a stress response alone may not constitute an injury, persistent, prolonged, or severe stress has the potential to result in psychological harm such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as physical harm.


Addressing psychosocial hazards is not just a legal obligation; it's a vital investment in your workforce's health and resilience.

By prioritising hazard management, businesses can create a more supportive environment, minimising the impact on both individual and organisational levels.
