Mentally Healthy Workplaces Online Hub
The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, DMIRS, (incorporates Worksafe) is developing a mentally healthy workplaces online hub with resources for both workers and management.
The new online resources aim to promote mentally healthy workplaces by educating workers and management on psychosocial hazards and risk factors in the workplace.
Resources for workers include information on psychosocial hazards, employer and worker responsibilities, issue resolution procedures, useful contacts and support networks for families.
The online hub will have videos, podcasts, information sheets and checklists for people to download and use.
In the coming months, the Department will be rolling out resources aimed at helping management build and maintain mentally healthy workplaces.
The resources are to support the new Code of Practice for Fly-in-Fly-Out mine and construction workers but will be of interest and benefit for all workers.
