WorkSafe WorkWell supporting workplace mental health and wellbeing

Victorian's spend around a third of their time at work which is why mental health and wellbeing strategies have never been more important in our workplaces.

A positive workplace can improve morale, reduce absenteeism and increase productivity, which is good for everyone.

The WorkSafe WorkWell program is a website and online toolkit offering practical steps to create healthier, more positive workplaces that promote good mental health and prevent mental injury or illness.

The WorkWell program provides resources, actions and steps that can be tailored to your small to medium sized workplace. Find out how businesses are already utilising the toolkit and how you can benefit.

Presented by the WorkWell team.

Practical fatigue management in the workplace

Fatigue in the workplace is contributed to by long work hours, working at night and in the early mornings as well as from other factors including commuting. 

Practical Fatigue Management needs to realistically consider fatigue from work and other aspects of life, while supporting effective behaviours in organisations and individuals.

This session will outline practical examples of how fatigue can be managed using free and cost-effective solutions.

Presented by Dr Adam Fletcher, CEO & Principal Consultant, Integrated Safety Support.

Introducing new occupational health and safety compliance codes

The occupational health and safety compliance codes (codes) provide duty holders with practical guidance on how to comply with their legal requirements under the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 (OHS Regulations.) 

As part of the review and remake of the OHS Regulations in 2017, the codes that align with the regulations were also reviewed. Eight new codes for hazardous manual handling, hazardous substances, plant confined spaces, demolition, facilities in construction, excavation, and noise are now available.

This session is a deep dive into the new codes, including the key features and what's new, to help you be compliant with Victoria's occupational health and safety legislation.
