Briefing: Proposed OHS Amendment (Psychological Health) Regulations

What is psychosocial health? What new protections would the proposed Psychosocial Regulations of the OH&S act give workers? What culturally and linguistically appropriate services are available to migrant workers facing psychosocial hazards at work?

MWC "Solidarity Hour" series

Objective and format

The MWC "Solidarity Hour" series aims to build capacity in migrant communities and community service organisations to address issues related to labour exploitation among migrant workers. They are short online sessions facilitated by expert trainers. The sessions include group discussion, Q&A, and hand-out resources.

Why train with the Migrant Workers Centre?

It is the only service of its kind in Australia, offering free and confidential case management support to migrant workers experiencing workplace issues, and leading research and advocacy for migrant workers' rights in Australia.
