OzHelp’s systematic approach to employee health and wellbeing aims to positively impact the current psychological climate in your workplace across four key areas including, harm prevention, early intervention, supporting recovery and health initiatives.
Our services include planning and advisory, training and education, workplace health screening, support, and counselling.
Whether you are starting to consider psychological safety in your workplace, or you’re looking to renew your existing program, we can help.
Programs and Services
OzHelp’s evidence-based programs and services can be tailored to meet the needs of your specific industry and workplace environment. We specailise in working within industries where employees are exposed to:
- Long work hours, shiftwork, hazardous conditions
- High pressure worksites, tight deadlines
- Industries where stigma is pervasive
- Poor environment and conditions, such as extreme temperatures, hazardous or manual tasks
- Remote or isolated workers, fly in fly out etc.
This short interactive workshop is designed to assist people in understanding how they can improve their health and wellbeing. This workshop is ideal for tool box talks or at events.
Participants can expect to increase their knowledge and understanding of depression, anxiety and suicide while learning strategies for personal resilience.
The program is designed to inspire participants to engage in self-care, seek help when they need it, and look out for others.
This workshop includes access to OzHelp’s online health check.
Peer Supporter Training is a workshop where individuals are trained in the appropriate methods and techniques to be able to assist with ‘on the ground support’ to workmates who may be experiencing a tough time.
Peer Supporter Skill Build Training is for individuals who have completed the Peer Supporter Training and would like to build upon their knowledge and skills in supporting others. (This training is only available face-to–face)
Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) aims to save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. OzHelp is accredited to deliver QPR training and has worked with QPR Institute to develop industry specific programs.
The Workplace Tune Up is a convenient way for your workforce to access a heath check online. Our digital health check provides employees with results to encourage action and most importantly this links them with ongoing support and referral pathways if needed.
Onsite health checks are available at selected worksites. Our wellbeing support worker and nurse provide quick health assessments while your employees are on the job. These health checks also link employees to ongoing support and referral pathways if needed.
These health checks are often referred to as a Tune Ups, with our Tradie Tune Ups and Truckie Tune Ups being our most successful programs that engage with employees or contractors.
OzHelp’s approach can be supported by our Employee Assistance Program partner Converge. This provides a single access point for your employees with a formal handover if ongoing or specific counselling is required.
Our wellbeing support team will follow-up with participants who have presented as at-risk through the health screen or during a training session. Participants can also call us at any time, and you can speak with us if you are concerned about an employee or co-worker.
Most importantly, all participants are provided with support to help them develop plans and/or tools to address their concerns, or guide them to other services such as their doctor, a counsellor, a psychologist, or crisis services.
