Assess Risk, Provide Training and Introduce Changes to Safety Culture

Psychosocial hazards in the workplace commonly include workplace bullying and harassment, work fatigue, poor job design, role conflict, and unsafe attitudes and work practices.

The Emergency Support Network’s (ESN) model of psychosocial hazards draws on human factors research to produce four key clusters:

  • Psychosocial Hazards – as defined in the research literature

  • Human Factors – covering the work interface

  • Mental Health and Well Being
  • Safety Culture and Climate

All four clusters must be considered when examining people, safety, and risk in the workplace.

Research demonstrates psychosocial hazards impact businesses in three ways:

  • Financially (through productivity, performance, injury claims)
  • Legal compliance
  • Organisational profile

For more information, please contact ESN directly to discuss your specific needs
