Psychosocial Risk Assessment

Considering all possible psychosocial risks and hazards requires expertise, time and consultation. The range or categories encompass organisational, physical, psychological and environmental facets of an organisation/workplace and they often interact with one and other. Sometimes poor health outcomes become signficiant barriers for individuals to move forward, however, these are a consequence of a poorly managed psychosocial risk or hazard not being managed. It is important to make well considered decisions regarding methods of controlling, monitoring and reviewing risks to worker's mental health. We can offer:

  • Step-by step guidance and coaching on the psycho-social risk assessment process

  • Development of a Risk Assessment framework (tools and templates) that is specific to psychosocial risks and hazards

  • Delivery of focus groups and consultation to assess psychosocial risk

  • Preparation of risk assessment reports and outcome recommendations

  • Preparation of meaningful psychosocial risk registers

Regulatory Compliance Advice and Audits

Organisations have a primary duty of care to prevent and manage risks to poor psychological health outcomes.

A safety management system must therefore recognise psychological ill health as an outcome borne from potentially controllable psychosocial risks or hazards. This spans far and wide elements of a PCBU's work practices and fundamentally links to how well work is designed and managed, both physically and psychologically.

  • Internal and External psychological health & safety systems audit arrangements

  • Audit and review of legislative compliance (National Model WHS Laws, QLD WHS Act 2011 & NSW WHS Act 2011)

  • Pre-arranged and targeted psychosocial hazard audit approaches

  • Preparation of responses to notices and breaches issued by Workplace Health and Safety Inspectors

  • Incident investigations and advisory service

Psychological Health Incident Investigations

Feeding into a comprehensive psychologically safe system of work is key incident investigation processes. Each organisation much investigate an incident that is reported and has or may (through delayed onset) caused harm to physical or psychological health. External support is often the preferred method of undertaking root cause analysis particular for complex or critical incident outcomes.
Our psychological health consultants are experts at extrapolating systematic and other contributory factors to incident or injury occurrence. An objective incident investigation makes recommendations by identify the causal primary hazard and secondary system factors, assessing and evaluating the risks and applying revised or new controls to prevent recurrence of incidents or injuries - thus protecting individuals and work groups.
We can take the heavy lifting away by providing investigation solutions that enhance your organisation's safety management system.

Health Monitoring - Psychological 'Stress'

A concept often misunderstood by organisations is the requirement to monitor the psychological health of workers as you would monitor their physical and general health.

Systems used by organisations remain reactive to health reports and not proactive in managing 'stress' or other health related factors that could cause harm to workers.

Some industries undertake specialised health monitoring where risks to health expose workers to harm. For example, the hazard of noise is managed as the health outcome can lead to industrial deafness risks - the health of a worker is therefore monitored through audiometric testing to review their hearing capacity.

Psychological health monitoring is not as objective as this example, but requires a similar systematic methodology to managing psychosocial risks that can lead to stress - and the outcome of stress being assessed and monitored. Strategies in this area can include

  • Development of health monitoring systems and processes

  • Psychological health screening tools (templates, questions, 1:1 scripts)

  • Psychosocial risk assessments identify new or sustained hazards/risks to stress onset or maintenance

  • Incident investigations and follow ups
