Risk Assessments

Creating a safe and healthy workplace.

Risk Assessments

Creating a safe and healthy workplace has never been more important with proposed and future amendments to WH&S legislation requiring organisations to manage their psychosocial risks. Beyond legal compliance, leader and employee participation in managing psychosocial risk is fundamental to a safety culture and should be a key focus area for an organisation’s people or wellbeing strategy.

A risk assessment is a systematic process of evaluating the potential psychosocial risks that may be involved in an activity. There are generally four major components to address when conducting a risk assessment:

  • Identify hazards
  • Assess Risks
  • Control Risks
  • Review Control Measure

Psychosocial risks are factors, conditions and experiences at work that may cause harm to the mental health of workers.

  • Low job control,
  • High job demands,
  • Poor support,
  • Poor change management,
  • Organisational Justice,
  • Low recognition and reward,
  • Low role clarity,
  • Poor workplace relationships,
  • Poor environmental conditions,
  • Remote and isolated work,
  • Exposure to traumatic content or events,
  • Violence and aggression,
  • Bullying,
  • Sexual harassment.
