Increasingly, there is an expectation that regulatory processes build stakeholder participation into the design of regulatory settings and products.

This is no more evident than in the rapidly evolving regulatory sphere of psycho-social hazard prevention, where successful outcomes require collaboration and commitment from all parties.

Although we often don’t name it, we are all familiar with examples of psycho-social hazards in the workplace: stress, fatigue, bullying, violence, aggression, harassment and burnout.

Regulators now have a clear mandate that duty holders must eliminate or minimise psycho-social risks – but what does this mean in practice and how will we all get there safely?

Join us for a unique opportunity to hear regulators and stakeholders in a conversation on co-design in the regulation of psycho-social hazards. What was easy? What was hard? What might they do differently next time?
