The Victorian Government made commitment in May 2021 to introduce regulations to address psychological health in the workplace. In developing the proposed regulations, WorkSafe has to engage directly with key stakeholders, including employee and employer representatives, industry experts, medical and allied professionals, legal practitioners, and persons of lived experience to ensure all views and concerns were considered and understood.
The proposed regulations are being drafted so that psychological injuries in the workplace is recognised as being no less harmful than physical injuries.
