Highest Psychosocial Risk
The highest psychosocial risk facing the Public Administration and Safety Industry is low recognition.
How can you manage this risk?
The combination of high workload, low job control, and low recognition and support can result in negative mental health outcomes. This combination is often the result or poor job design where the demands of a role are not balanced with the ability to control when and how work is done and appropriate support such as having the tools required to succeed and support from leaders.
Leaders can work to understand what demands workers are facing and how to best support them through co-design sessions where workers can provide feedback and ideas for solutions.
