In this issue of Customer Konektions, beyondblue discuss the action plan they co-launched with the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance as part of the Heads Up initiative, which focuses on fostering mentally healthy workplaces. This initiative encourages the Australian business community to take action on mental health. The supporting action plan provides practical strategies for organisations to implement; I trust you will find this a useful tool for your businesses.

Following the significant changes made to the NSW Workers Compensation Act in 2012 we review the effects and implication of these changes on NSW businesses.

One of our business partners, WC20, has provided a very interesting layman’s guide to understanding workers compensation premium drivers.

We are very excited about the pending launch of Konekt ErgoScreenTM  our online self-evaluation ergonomic risk assessment tool. With an increasing number of employees working from home, I am sure a significant number of employers are asking how they can manage this new set of ergonomic risks that need to be managed in accordance with WHS legislation. I hope you will be able to join us at one of our launch seminars.

We also share the results from our 2014 annual customer satisfaction survey, bring you the highlights from some new Australian research, and provide highlights from Safe Work Australia’s comparison of workers compensation arrangements in Australia and New Zealand.
