This one-day Introduction to ISO 45003 training course provides an overview of the standard, including key terminology, its purpose and benefits, and considerations for implementing ISO 45003 within an existing OH&SMS. Participants will learn how to identify psychosocial hazards that could have a negative impact on an employee’s mental health by considering aspects such as social factors, work organisation and environment, plus hazardous equipment and tasks. Delegates will also learn how to implement control measures to eliminate these hazards and therefore reduce the associated risks to their employees’ psychological wellbeing.

An environment that supports employees’ mental wellbeing may include providing job security, fair treatment, predictable working hours and opportunities for personal development. Offering such benefits not only supports the individual but also often benefits the organisation, for example through reducing employee turnover, improving productivity and increasing worker engagement.

ISO 45003:2021 is the international Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&SMS) standard designed to provide guidelines for managing psychosocial risks within the workplace, whether this is on-site at the company premises or remotely. The standard was written by the ISO/TC 283 committee who also wrote ISO 45001. ISO 45003 was written to be used in conjunction with ISO 45001, the standard which provides guidance on preventing work-related injury and ill-health within the workplace.
