Protecting Mental Health: Psychosocial Hazards and Sexual Harassment in NFPs

About this event

Are you up to date with recent changes to the laws around your duty to manage risks to the mental health of those involved in your organisation? Working and volunteering in the not-for-profit sector is rewarding; but can also be challenging. Our employees and volunteers may experience stress and difficult work-related factors like high job demands, exposure to trauma, harassment and bullying. These can compromise their mental health.

In this webinar, we’ll step you through your not-for-profit’s legal obligations when it comes to the mental health and safety of your staff and volunteers. We’ll provide you with practical examples and tips that will leave you feeling more confident in what is expected of you when it comes to managing psychosocial hazards and fulfilling your positive duty to prevent workplace sexual harassment and other unlawful conduct.  

We’ll cover:

  • Your organisation’s basic safety obligations  
  • What psychosocial hazards are, and how to identify them 
  • The positive duty to prevent sexual harassment and discrimination 
  • Practical steps your organisation can take to protect your workers and meet your legal obligations  
  • Where you can get more help and information
