The personal risks for you as a leader

  • The WHS Act 2011 states that it is your personal responsibility as a leader and an officer under the law to protect your employees.

  • If you don't exercise your duty of care, which includes your staff’s psychological safety, you are breaking the law.

  • The law tells you what you need to do, and if you don't do it, you risk being personally prosecuted for any breach.

  • The Act is risk based, this means there doesn’t need to be an incident in your workplace for you to be in breach.

The financial benefits of investing in mental health

  • Australian businesses will receive an average return of $2.30 for every $1 they invest in effective workplace mental health strategies (PwC report 2014)

  • Workplace mental health interventions to improve workplace mental health and wellbeing will save $4.5 billion per year (KPMG 2018)
