Healthy Heads leads the industry towards meeting Psychological Health and Safety responsibilities
Healthy Heads is excited to announce the release of its game-changing tool designed to help businesses of all sizes understand and manage psychological health and safety in the workplace.
Healthy Heads has developed the Seven Stories. Seven Strategies Healthy Heads Roadmap Planner (the Planner), as a ‘how to’ guide to encourage businesses to get started on their own workplace wellbeing plans.
With the April 2023 adoption of the Model Code of Practice: Managing psychosocial hazards at work, under Work, Health and Safety laws, businesses must eliminate or minimise psychosocial risks as far as is reasonably practicable.
Industry stakeholders requested guidance and support from Healthy Heads to respond to new legislation, and accordingly, Healthy Heads has worked with the industry to develop the Planner, which explains mental health and psychosocial hazards through real-to-life stories.
This resource makes things as easy as possible for businesses in responding to the Model Code of Practice and the Planner offers ready-made policies, tip sheets, resource lists, training recommendations and information links, along with three example plans ready for implementation.
Developed in partnership with AP Psychology & Consulting Services who specialise in helping businesses create psychologically safe, healthy and thriving workplaces, the Planner is aligned with global ISO 45003 guidelines and occupational health and safety legislation for managing workplace psychosocial hazards and risks.
The Planner was funded through Round 6 of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator’s (NHVR) Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative (HVSI), supported by the Australian Government.
