People at Work: a free evidence-based psychosocial risk assessment tool for workplaces

For: Employers and managers Information seekers

Building and fostering a mentally healthy workplace is good for business and worker health and wellbeing.

People at Work is Australia’s only validated and evidence based psychosocial risk assessment tool with benchmarking that measures psychosocial hazards and factors.

People at Work can help workplaces comply with health and safety duties. It supports better management of work-related psychosocial hazards and factors to prevent psychological harm.

Through People at Work, workplaces have access to:

  • the online People at Work survey on a digital platform that helps workplaces identify and risk assess psychological hazards such as job demands; job resources; workplace bullying; psychological health; work-related violence and aggression; sprain and strains; and worker intentions.
  • all materials required to administer and report on the People at Work Survey, including access to automated and customised reports, interactive learning modules, and resources to assist in implementing a psychosocial risk management approach and evaluating the effectiveness of chosen interventions.

Australian work health and safety regulators have jointly funded People at Work to provide employers and workers with free tools and resources to support mentally healthy workplaces. The hazards measured by People at Work are based on decades of research highlighting the factors that influence worker psychological health and safety. The psychosocial hazards are also based on guidance from Safe Work Australia.

People at Work provides a way for workplaces to identify their psychosocial risks, benchmark them and track improvements over time. For more information visit the People at Work website.
