About the event
Join Recovery Partners on Thursday 11 August from 3pm at East Hotel in Canberra as we hear all about psychosocial hazards from Bradley Cummins.
In June this year, the national Model WHS Laws were amended to consider a wide range of matters, with a focus on psychosocial hazards.
The recent changes to the Model WHS Laws will likely soon be adopted by all states and territories.
The amendments included providing a definition of psychosocial hazards and clarifying duties in relation to psychosocial risks in the model WHS Regulations.
These risks range from bullying and harassment, to work demands and management.
The event will cover the changes to the new laws and help you understand exactly what psychosocial hazards are, how to identify them and most importantly, how to minimise them within the workplace.
