 ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Workplace stress is a health and safety issue that is regulated by a myriad of different laws. Employers have obligations to prevent and address workplace stress. Is the risk management policy sufficient? What training mechanisms are in place to mitigate your risk? And, when are employers on the hook for stress suffered by employees? This session examines these issues and covers:

  • Why managing stress is a workplace issue
  • Recognising stress in individuals and knowing when – and how - to act
  • Spotlight on workplace bullying and stress
  • Understanding the relevant work health and safety laws that apply

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
