Safe Work Australia is funding research into psychological health risks in the workplace.

Safe Work Australia has released a grant opportunity to fund high-quality research projects into interventions to manage work related psychosocial hazards. 

The grant will provide a total of up to $500,000 across one or more proposals and applicants from the academic, non-government and private sectors are encouraged to consider this opportunity. 

The questions that the the authorities want answered include;

  • What strategies work best to manage psychological risks in the workplace?

  • Are current approaches to managing psychosocial hazards effective?

  • What barriers do employers face in implementing best-practice interventions, and how can these be overcome?
