Mental Health Services
You have Public Liability insurance and Workers Compensation but how can you protect your business from the downside of poor mental health? Legislation passed in 2012 dictates every workplace has a legal obligation to protect employee health and safety, both physically and mentally. But it makes great financial sense for your business too to take steps to ensure the working environment is considerate of mental health and aware of what makes a happy, healthy workplace.
Occupational Health and Safety
Occupational health and Safety (OHS) is generally a topic avoided by employees in the workplace due to a variety of factors. If you talk to a variety of employees in different industries, you get an understanding of the views shared by so many. You would probably hear things like:
- ” I never needed to do these risk assessments before”
- “These policies have been written to slow me down”
- ” I have done this job for the last five years, I don`t need to be told otherwise”
- “This is too hard; I just want to get the job done”
It’s clear that OHS responsibilities has changed over the past 80 years and that the emphasis on health of employees in the workplace has become paramount.
Many employers are not aware of their full obligation under the Australian legislation and the health of employees is not limited to only physical harm. Other factors that may contribute to poor health include:
- Hearing loss due to Exposure to Occupational noise;
- Occupational lung disease due to workplace exposure to gases;
- Mental health due to increased stress and workload;
- Lifestyle factors and coping methodologies.
It is more important now than ever before that Employers develop functional and productive workplaces, to engage with employees and to develop collaborative policies and procedures.
