Workers Compensation Psychological Injury on the Increase

Mar 4, 2024

We are all aware the number of workers’ compensation claims for psychological injury are on the increase.

#The Managing the risk of psychosocial hazards at work Code of Practice contains the following:

The positive obligations on employers to take steps to avoid this situation are clear.  Employers are assumed to be aware of the risks and a new level of management of those risks is now required.

Employers MUST now manage those psychosocial risks in accordance with the WHS Regulation, including identifying hazards, eliminating or minimising risks, controlling risks in accordance with the hierarchy of controls, and maintaining and reviewing control measures.

Are you, as an employer, ready for this?
