What are Psychosocial Risks?

Psychosocial risks refer to the potential for various factors in the workplace or other environments to have negative effects on a person's mental and emotional well-being. These risks can arise from a combination of social, psychological, and organisational factors that can lead to stress, burnout, and other mental health issues.

Examples of Psychosocial risks in the workplace:

  • Workload and Time Pressure

  • Unclear Job Expectations

  • Career Development Opportunities

  • Lack of Control

  • Lack of Support

  • Role Conflict and Ambiguity

  • Organisational Culture

  • Change and Uncertainty

  • Lack of Work-Life Balance

  • Job Insecurity

Your First Step and How Wellbeing Solutions Supports You?

As a business, your first step is to conduct a comprehensive Psychosocial Risk Assessment. Wellbeing Solutions supports this process by using our electronic ISO:45003 assessment tool that when completed by all employees, offers a comprehensive understanding of the psychosocial risks present in the workplace.

Early Detection of Issues

Completing the assessment electronically allows for efficient and timely data collection, enabling the business to detect and address potential issues before they escalate. Early detection of psychosocial risks allows for proactive intervention and prevention strategies, minimising the impact on employee well-being and organisational performance.

Data-Driven Decision Making

The data collected through the electronic assessment provides a basis for data-driven decision-making in managing psychosocial risks. By analysing the assessment results, the business can prioritise interventions, allocate resources effectively, and track progress over time to ensure continuous improvement in employee well-being.

Employee Engagement and Participation

Involving employees in the assessment process promotes engagement, ownership, and buy-in for initiatives aimed at improving psychosocial well-being. When employees feel their voices are heard and their concerns are taken seriously, they are more likely to actively participate in efforts to address psychosocial risks and contribute to a positive work environment.

Compliance with Standards

Conducting electronic ISO:45003 assessments demonstrates the business's commitment to complying with industry standards and best practices for managing psychosocial risks. It helps ensure that the organisation meets its obligations to protect employee health and safety and promotes a culture of continuous improvement in workplace well-being.
