NT UPDATES PSYCH REGS

The Northern Territory has made amendments to its Work Health and Safety (National Uniform Legislation) Regulations 2011 that require businesses and organizations to apply a range of controls when managing psychosocial risks in the workplace.

This change aligns with the national model WHS Regulations, which were amended to address psychosocial risks such as bullying. The amendments ensure that all workplace hazards, whether physical or psychological, are managed using the same approach.

The implementation of the Territory's version of the national model WHS Code of Practice on psychosocial hazards will be delayed until later this year to incorporate the control measures.

Queensland and the Commonwealth jurisdiction have also made similar variations to their regulations to address psychosocial risks.
