EVENT: Workplace Mental Health and Well-being Forum
This event is co-presented by the Centre of Transformative Work Design (CTWD) and WorkSafe WA (Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety)
The impact of FIFO work arrangements on mental health and wellbeing of FIFO workers has been in the spotlight over the last years. The knowledge and skills of organisational psychologists are key in leading the way and supporting stakeholders in shaping FIFO work to protect workers and enable them to thrive.
This event will give first-hand insights into the findings and recommendations of the WA government’s recent research report on the impact of FIFO work arrangements on the mental health and wellbeing of workers.
