How does People Solutions assist organisations in reducing psychosocial risks and hazards? 

In recent times, state governments have increasingly emphasised to organisations their responsibilities in ensuring they provide a safe workplace. Through additional codes of practices and multiple communication avenues, it is clear leaders are required to not only address the physical aspects of health and safety (such as protective equipment, working at heights, and handling chemicals) but also the psychosocial aspects of fostering a safe and healthy work environment (such as managing negative interactions with others, handling excessive workloads, and promoting individual agency).

How We Can Help

This is where People Solutions can help. As Psychologists who specialise in organisational psychology, we have extensive knowledge, expertise, and understanding of people, work, and ensuring a healthy and productive work environment for all. When you partner with us, you can ensure you are helping your people succeed at work; that is, they are happy, mentally well, and engaged.

When people within your organisation are experiencing a range of negative psychological health and/or work outcomes, our job is to understand the root cause of these symptoms and provide solutions that not only meet your legal obligations but also create sustainable, positive change. Our approach will reduce your organisational risk while saving you time and money, fostering a culture where everyone is proactive in identifying and managing psychosocial risks and hazards.

Psychosocial Risks & Hazards

Our approach and methodology align with Safe Work Australia and WorkSafe Western Australia’s psychosocial and relevant codes of practice and can be best presented as two key phases – Identification and Implementation.

Identification – Psychosocial Audit and Road Map

  • Audit: We offer both comprehensive organisational audits and targeted audits of specific teams or business units. This audit can be tailored to meet the organisation’s specific needs and may include all or some of the following methods:
    • Desktop gap analysis of current strategies, policies, practices, and organisational data against legislation requirements and/or best practices.
    • Conducting and/or reviewing results from culture, engagement, safety and/or specific psychosocial risks and hazards surveys.
    • Focus groups and/or interviews utilising an appreciative inquiry approach.
  • Recommendations and Road Map: Based on the gathered data, we create a detailed report with recommendations and a road map to assist the organisation in leveraging strengths. Our approach prioritises and addresses key psychosocial risks and hazards identified, drawing on our understanding of job resources, demands, and controls and the relationships between these.

Implementation – Creating a positive psychosocial climate and culture

  • Education and Training:
      • Information Sessions for Executives: These sessions aim to communicate the audit results as well as to discuss the importance of leadership, emphasising critical success factors for implementing the recommendations and road map.
      • Education and Training Sessions with Managers/Supervisors: These sessions not only communicate results but also increase knowledge and skills in critical areas for this role level to assist in the implementation of the road map
  • Climate and Cultural Transformation: Utilising Leadership and Team Coaching methodology to ensure a positive psychosocial climate and psychologically safe culture for the organisation into the future.
  • Consulting Support and Advice: Assisting HR and HSE with areas of recommendations. People Solutions leverages our expertise in recruitment and selection practices, as well as organisation-role/work-person fit analysis and design.
