Chapter 1 unpacks core concepts from research into mental health and wellbeing such as the role of social determinants including work. The aim is to understand the drivers and context, both nationally and globally, for recent regulatory changes in Australia and to identify paradigm shifts in thinking leaders might need to make.
Chapter 2 provides an overview of the legal obligations workplaces have in relation to managing psychosocial hazards. This chapter will be of particular relevance to leaders who are unfamiliar with WHS laws, WHS terminology and psychological health and safety principles.
Chapter 3 makes the argument for moving beyond compliance with the WHS obligations (preventing harm) towards best practice (promoting mental health). It outlines the who, what, why and foundations of mentally healthy workplaces. This chapter also identifies core principles for change and provides step-by-step planning advice for an organization-wide approach.
Chapter 4 is a comprehensive how-to guide for psychosocial risk management in the workplace. It covers common psychosocial hazards, practical methods for their identification, tools and strategies for conducting risk assessments, how to select control measures and review whether they are working, and recording the risk management process and outcomes.
