WorkSafe Victoria has upgraded the WorkWell Mental Health Toolkit for small business.

The Toolkit is a step-by-step guide that helps small businesses with employees to create a safe and mentally healthy workplace. It contains practical resources from reputable organisations such as Beyond Blue and R U OK? to teach good practice.

The new and improved Toolkit comes in response to feedback from business owners, advisers and leaders, and features improvements to make it easier for users to access and navigate.

It’s the same toolkit – made better.

Previous users will notice the following important changes:

  • The login has been removed, allowing users to access the Toolkit quicker, easier and at any time.
  • The dashboard has been upgraded, with topics now grouped based on what users want most, such as legal obligations, mental health essentials or topics relevant to specific types of businesses.
  • There’s now advice on next steps to take if a worker is injured, including how to get help and how to support them back to work.
  • For those who can’t tackle the Toolkit all at once, there is a feature to bring topics direct to user inboxes at a time and pace that suits them.

The Toolkit was made by occupational health and safety (OHS) professionals and mental health specialists and can be tailored to the user’s business size.
