Psychosocial Hazards in the Workplace

In April this year, the Managing the risk of Psychosocial Hazards at work Code of Practice 2022 came into effect.

As someone who runs a business and employs people, naturally I was interested to learn more about what this means for me and for the projects that I work on.

To help me understand the code further, I invited my colleague and friend Dr Meg Hooper to join me to discuss it.

Meg is the CEO and Principal Consultant at Carousel Consulting, the experts in organisational change and building resilient teams. So, with Meg’s background in supporting many an organisation, she was the obvious choice to talk me through it.

In this episode we discuss;

  • What is a psychosocial hazard in the workplace
  • How is a psychosocial hazard different from psychological safety
  • Who is impacted by the code?
  • What do businesses need to do?

Plus, we explore a few of the hazards that we encounter in the work that we do and what organisations can do to mitigate their risk.

An interesting and highly relevant conversation that left me with a much broader understanding of the code and in many ways, how the work that we are both already doing is setting organisations up for success.
