Virtual Event Series
Synopsis and overview of the session
“A psychologically healthy and safe workplace is one that promotes workers’ psychological wellbeing and actively works to prevent harm to worker psychological health, including in negligent, reckless or intentional ways”.
This definition assigns two responsibilities to employers:
1) prevent harm; and
2) promote wellbeing.
Focus Network, in partnership with FlourishDx, invite you to join other leading health and safety executives to explore how risk management and health promotion can be deployed at scale with FlourishDx to enable proactive (as opposed to reactive) mental health care for employees. The important role of the line manager and how they can be empowered to lead psychological health and safety at a workgroup level will be discussed.

FlourishDx is a cloud based platform that combines risk management with health promotion to assist in the prevention of mental illness and to optimise employee mental health.
Created with assistance from a world leading research institute, and in collaboration with highly regarded companies, FlourishDx has many features to simplify and improve psychological health, safety and wellbeing at work.
Using secure, online surveys, employers can identify common psychological hazards and assess risks. FlourishDx’s intelligent reporting makes it easy to prioritise and take action. This increases compliance with workplace health and safety legislation and decreases the risk of stress related illnesses and compensation claims.
High quality, animated video eLearning content covering the continuum of mental health (as well as sleep health and fatigue risk management) can be used to increase employee awareness, and can be tracked to ensure compliance. Line manager specific training is also available.
FlourishDx is accessible across all devices and includes a downloadable mobile app to increase user experience and adoption of health promotion capabilities. Data privacy is ensured through compliance with international standards (including GDPR and ISO27001).
