Managing risks

PCBUs must eliminate or minimise psychosocial risks so far as is reasonably practicable. This can be done by following the risk management process:

  • identifying the hazards  
  • assessing the associated risks 
  • implementing control measures to eliminate or minimise risks, and 
  • regularly reviewing control measures to ensure they remain effective.  

You must do these things in consultation with your workers and any HSRs if you have them.
