The Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner (OFSC) promotes best safety practice across Australia’s building and construction sites and, in doing so, recognises that the mental health and wellbeing of workers is just as important as their physical health and safety. Addressing psychosocial hazards is not only crucial for the health and safety of workers, it’s also good for business. When someone is experiencing poor mental health, this may contribute to workplace accidents, injuries and reduce productivity. Further information is available on the OFSC’s Mental Health page.

More videos showcasing innovative safety practices by companies accredited under the WHS Accreditation Scheme are available on the OFSC website.
