NZISM is delighted to be working with Umbrella to support members in an area coming into increasingly sharp focus - psychosocial risk in the workplace. We know what it is and understand why it's beneficial for both individuals and organisations to operate in a place that promotes Mentally Healthy Work.

But how do we assess where our organisation currently stands?

And what do we need to put in place to ensure our workplaces do more than pay lip service to Mentally Healthy Work?

Psychosocial risk workshop

Creating mentally healthy work and managing psychosocial risk is a growing area of interest for health and safety practitioners and leaders alike. Organisations are increasingly focusing on understanding how to improve the mental health and wellbeing of their workforce.

This 2-hour workshop facilitated by Umbrella Wellbeing will provide participants foundational knowledge on psychological health and safety, and an understanding of psychosocial risk frameworks and assessment.
