Workforce mental health and wellness can be a significant challenge for resources and energy industry employers to address and manage.
It is reported that one in five Australian resources and energy industry workers experience a mental health condition each year. Despite these statistics, industry leaders have a role to play in contributing and sharing best practices on this important issue.
Resources and energy employers across Australia have a shared commitment to physical and psychological safety. Mental health and wellbeing of people in our industry plays a very large part of this commitment.
As the leading voice on workplace matters Australian Resources and Energy Employer Association AREEA is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our industry’s people. AREEA has worked with mental health and wellness experts and workplace professionals to develop a suite of initiatives to support members and industry employers to build capability and create mentally healthy workplaces.
