Safe Work New Research on Mental Health

Safe Work Australia released 2 research reports on the prevalence of workplace bullying and harassment and the consequences of management commitment to psychological health and safety and poor mental health on organisational productivity.

According to the report, psychological health and safety in the workplace costs employers around $6 billion annually and the concerning part about it is the  prevalence of this problematic behaviour has increased from 7 per cent in 200-2010 to 9.7 per cent in 2014-15.

It is believed that awareness of the issue may have something to do with the increase, with more people reporting workplace bullying than before.

Safe Work Australia explained the importance of the research as it is the first national collection of information on bullying in the country. It is also valuable to employers to help them commit to improving mental health in the workplace.
