Abstract:
Provides guidance for organisations in the resources and construction sectors that utilise fly-in fly-out (FIFO) work arrangements to support the development and maintenance of mentally healthy workplaces by:
  • using a risk management process to identify psychosocial hazards and risk factors in the workplace, and help protect mental health
  • managing and avoiding the exacerbation of existing mental health concerns at work
  • encouraging positive mental health outcomes for all workers.

This code provides guidance on how to address psychosocial hazards and risk factors as part of established risk management processes and systems. It is structured to:
  • highlight the importance of mentally healthy workplaces (Chapter 1)
  • describe a risk-based approach to prevent and manage harm from psychosocial hazards and risk factors in the workplace (Chapter 2)
  • raise awareness of the importance of leadership and workplace culture in developing and maintaining mentally healthy workplaces (Chapter 3)
  • focus on the risk management process (Chapters 4 to 8)
  • outline considerations when responding to reports of psychosocial hazards and risk factors (Chapter 9).
