how well™ aligns with

ISO 45003 global guidelines

Psychosocial hazards are increasingly recognized as major challenges to health, safety and wellbeing at work.

Ensuring that your people speak up about psychosocial hazards that are impacting their overall wellbeing isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also your legal obligation. Well™  has been designed to help you align with the ISO 45003 global psychological health and safety guidelines.

The ISO 45003 is the first global standard that gives practical advice on managing psychological health and safety at work.

It provides guidance on the management of psychosocial hazards, as part of an occupational health and safety management system. The aim and intended outcomes of the global guidelines are to prevent work-related injury and ill health to workers, and to provide safe and healthy workplaces. The guidelines state the critical importance for organizations to eliminate hazards and minimize risks by taking effective preventive and protective measures, which include measures to manage psychosocial risks.

As outlined in the ISO 45003, psychosocial risks can have a broad impact on an individual's psychological health and safety, as well as their overall health, safety and wellbeing.

While the ISO 45003 guidelines encompass various aspects of employee psychological health and safety, well™ focuses on the psychosocial hazards that impact people at work.

Backed by current research, we have identified six major themes associated with the work environment that can negatively cause harm to an individual’s overall wellbeing, regardless of organization type or size. Our content is designed to fall within these themes as well as the ever-evolving landscape of workplace psychosocial hazards.

Here are just a few:

  • High job demand e.g. high workload
  • Low control e.g. work pace
  • Poor relationships e.g. bullying
  • Role conflict and ambiguity e.g. low role clarity
