Employer Obligations for Psychosocial Safety

13 July 2023

What does psychosocial safety mean and what are the requirements for managers and businesses under new Work Health and Safety regulations? View this webinar featuring Bee Singh from Catalina Consultants, to learn more about meeting your obligations and embedding a supportive culture in your practice. Originally held 26 July 2023.


Psychological health has been part of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011, however from April 2023, legislative amendments came into effect that placed a stronger obligation to manage psychosocial safety at work. These laws apply to all sizes of practice, and are relevant to business owners, directors and those with managerial responsibility. To help you better understand the requirements and actively manage this issue within your policies, procedures and practice culture, our expert speaker covers topics including the following:

  • What is the difference between psychosocial safety and psychological safety?
  • How do you define psychosocial hazards and psychosocial risks, and what are some common examples?
  • How do you manage psychosocial risks effectively?
  • What are the impacts of the new psychosocial hazard regulations?
  • What are the responsibilities of employers and employees?
  • How important is reporting?
  • What practical measures can be put in place to support positive workplace mental health?
  • What are some examples of situations that may impact mental health at work?
