Australia’s only validated psychosocial risk assessment tool, People at Work, is now up and running on a free digital platform.
Thanks to work health and safety regulators and leading researchers, what was previously a paper-based survey, with time-consuming manual data entry sheets, is now accessible through a user-friendly digital platform.
Jim Kelly, Director of Health and Safe Design at SafeWork NSW, says “Workplaces have a duty to protect the psychological health of workers in the same way they protect their physical safety.”
“Put simply, People at Work is free for Aussie businesses and workplaces to help them identify and manage work-related psychosocial hazards and factors which doesn’t need an expert to interpret the psychosocial risk assessment results” Mr Kelly said.
The newly released digital platform enables organisations to:
- self-administer the People at Work survey to their workers.
- add custom demographics like workgroups and roles.
- receive automated reporting with key breakdowns to identify high risk areas with recommended control measures, benchmarking, and guidance.
The platform also provides organisations with their results in both a high-level summary and a detailed report with suggestions for improvements in the workplace.
