People at work

People at Work have recently launched Australia’s only validated psychosocial risk assessment tool. This is a great new initiative aimed at reducing workplace injuries and keeping people safe. Too often, we see workers injured in circumstances where it was plainly foreseeable and easily avoidable. Risk assessments can be an effective tool to identify, assess and respond to workplace risks, and keep workers safe from harm.

Put simply, People at Work is free for Aussie businesses and workplaces to help them identify and manage work-related psychosocial hazards and factors AND which doesn’t need an expert to interpret the psychosocial risk assessment results.*
