Workshop

Join us on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd December 2022 for a two-day training course. This face-to-face course offers an introduction to psychosocial hazards in the workplace.

The course begins from the premise that most of us know something about mental health and mental illness and how work can affect us. This course will enable the learner to go to the next step of understanding what at work can affect our mental health.

Evidence-based and relating to safety in the workplace, this course will enable the learner to assess, control and review those control measures implemented for the psychosocial hazards in the workplace. The course demonstrates the application of risk-management principles to the identification & management of psychosocial risk.

By the completion of the course, you will understand what mental health and mental illness is, how to set up a process to assist in identifying psychosocial hazards within the workplace and how to risk assess those identified hazards and implement controls to those hazards.

Learning Outcomes:

  • You will gain an understanding of what mental health and mental illness is.
  • You will learn how to set up a process to assist in identifying psychosocial hazards within the workplace.
  • You will learn and practice how to risk assess those identified hazards and implement controls to those hazards.
  • The course will teach you the importance of return to work and return to work for someone after mental trauma.
  • You will learn how to re-design a job for someone who has suffered mental trauma.
  • You will learn about stigma and the role it plays in hindering people’s ability to successfully recover from psychological trauma and how to address stigma in the workplace.

The course is ideally suited to managers, supervisors, safety professionals, and those practitioners and professionals that are looking for an initial grounding in psychosocial risk.
