Employers have a legal responsibility to protect their workers by managing hazards and risks in the workplace. This responsibility has now been specifically expanded to include psychosocial risks in the workplace as a result of new national and state/territory legislation and regulation in 2022/2023. All states and territories have now included psychosocial risk management requirements in their respective OHS legislation. Employers are now required to identify and manage psychosocial hazards and risks, just as they would identify and manage physical hazards and risks. This requires that they: • Identify any psychosocial hazards and risks; • Assess all identified hazards and risks to consider their impact on workers; • Control risks by eliminating and minimising them as much as possible; and • Review any control measures implemented, to ensure they are effective
