The Bigger Picture for Workplace Safety

Wednesday, 29 Jul 2015
The Bigger Picture for Workplace Safety

While physical safety should never be discounted or detracted from, it should be seen as part of a bigger picture alongside emotional and mental safety.

By thinking of safety in a more holistic way, not only will you protect your team against a greater spectrum of hazards and risks, but you’ll also create a more positive, innovative and creative work environment.

To see if you’re contributing to a physically, emotionally and mentally safe workplace, ask yourself how well you can relate to these statements.


PROTECT: you’re able to identify a risk or hazard and can take the appropriate action to protect yourself and others from it by ensuring its removal or minimisation.

KEEP WELL: you take your own and other people’s physical wellbeing into consideration, practice good hygiene, get regular exercise and eat a balanced diet.

PRACTICE: you’re aware of your workplace health and safety policies and programs, putting them into action each day.

EDUCATE: you take it upon yourself to keep up-to-date with the latest workplace health and safety standards, support networks and resources available to help keep you and your team happy, healthy, safe and productive!


RESPECT: you treat new ideas and concepts with respect, providing them with the time and consideration they deserve.

CREATE: you foster creative thinking and innovation, always looking for new and better ways to achieve your goals.

MANAGE: you can think and feel objectively and rationally, can understand and control your own thoughts.

DECIDE: you’re able to make decisions collaboratively and productively, taking into consideration a wide range of influences and feeling comfortable with your final choice.


SELF-REGULATE: you’re able to regulate your own moods, exercise restraint and express feelings with control.

EMPATHISE: you’re a compassionate person and have the ability to connect with those around you. Generally great at customer service and problem solving.

PEOPLE SKILLS: you’re able to build rapport and trust quickly with others, avoiding power struggles and backstabbing.

SELF-AWARE: you have a healthy sense of self-awareness such as being able to understand your own strengths, weaknesses and impacts your actions have on others.

MOTIVATE: you’re self-motivated, resilient and optimistic when you encounter disappointment and are driven by inner ambition not just external rewards.
