9:30am to 10:30am: Is the work safe? Do I feel safe? A psychosocial journey

Learn what psychosocial factors are, and the role they play in the development of injuries and the return to work process. In this 'choose your own adventure' session, we'll use a 'stick person' role play to explore different workplace scenarios and show how psychosocial factors can impact health and work outcomes.

10:50am to 11:50am: Occupational violence and aggression in healthcare

OVA in healthcare is a major OHS concern. Learn WorkSafe's approach to supporting workplaces to address OVA. Also hear from Alzheimer's Australia (Vic) on the work they do to support health services and aged care providers to care for people with dementia in a way that reduces aggression and improves care outcomes.
