Professional Practice Program
Build your knowledge and skills for psychosocial risk management.
The Professional Practice in Psychological Health and Safety (PPPH&S) program has been developed specifically to improve the competence of people and safety professionals applying psychosocial risk management within organisations.
The program is internationally relevant, aligning to ISO 45003:2021, while also ensuring legislative compliance in countries with a positive duty such as Australia and the UK. The content in this 12-week program is highly practical, with a requirement for participants to apply what they have learnt in the month between the four two-hour live interactive sessions with subject matter experts from FlourishDx.
Online delivery means that learners can join in from anywhere in the world, with a time zone aligned to Australian and North American audiences. For those that can’t make it to one or more of the live sessions, each session is recorded and shared the day after delivery.
Note: Cohort #2 is available for internal people and safety professionals only. Super-Early bird pricing is available until 30 November 2023.
