Please see An Introduction to Mental Health and Wellbeing for Health and Safety Managers Course Synopsis 


Traditionally, the Health and Safety profession focused on the physical risks to health and safety at work. Modern day life, however, has become increasingly complex and there are now a whole raft of additional health and safety risks that have to be considered. These are the psychosocial risks that can impact positively or negatively on the mental health and wellbeing of employees. As a result, Health and Safety Managers are becoming increasingly involved in driving mental health and wellbeing strategies within their organisations. In this course, we aim to raise awareness of psychosocial factors and how they can be effectively identified, monitored and managed in order to promote high levels of mental wellbeing, avoid a negative impact and continuously improve the overall health and safety management within your organisation.  


Objectives

This interactive course is designed to provide a practical approach to understanding and managing mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, and will include:

  • What do we mean by mental health/wellbeing and how does it link to physical health?
  • Why is it important to manage mental health/wellbeing in organisational settings?
  • What are the psychosocial risk factors that we need to pay attention to?
  • How can we identify and monitor psychosocial risks in organisations?

  • Working with organisational stakeholders to minimise psychosocial risks and their impact on mental health/wellbeing.
