Our Training Is Your Insurance

A workplace that values mental health is a productive workplace.

A workplace built on a commitment to respect, free from unreasonable and overbearing behaviours, doesn’t happen by accident. Neither does a workplace free from risk of hazardous behaviours due to impairment from drugs and alcohol.

But you can achieve this through training, awareness and action. Your workplace will be happier, more productive and less-exposed to risk of breach under The Act and less exposed to risk of psychological or physical workplace injury.

ADA Australia’s Workplace Mental Health Training provides strategies to identify, manage and address psychological hazards at work, to foster mentally healthy workplace behaviours and norms and to reduce risk of adverse legal action under The Fair Work Act (2009) and Work Health and Safety Act (2011).

Reduce compliance costs and productivity losses

Reduce insurance, legal and liability costs

Protect against unfair dismissal claims.

Guard against blowouts in work cover premiums and Workers’ Compensation costs.

ADA WORKPLACE MENTAL HEALTH TRAINING

Work stress plays a significant role in the incidence of depression, anxiety and other disorders. But work should not “bust our brains”. A healthy workplace is one that protects the mental well-being of its people through good organisational practices, responsive management, a positive workplace culture, support and respect.

ADA Australia’s Workplace Mental Health Training will improve productivity and satisfaction at work, guard against hazardous behaviours and promote healthy work-systems and practices.

ADA WORKPLACE DRUGS & ALCOHOL AWARENESS TRAINING

The misuse of alcohol and drugs comes at a heavy cost to business, to work relationships and productivity, and to families and the community.

ADA’s Workplace Drugs and Alcohol Awareness Training programs foster safe-work practices through improved awareness and understanding of the impact of these substances on health and wellbeing, on brain function, judgment and work performance.

TRAINING THAT MATTERS

At ADA, we understand that when you invest in training you want it to ‘stick’:

  • To drive awareness and behavioural change
  • To change mindsets and to foster improved workplace culture and practices
  • To increase satisfaction, commitment and productivity
  • To produce lasting benefits to the health and wellbeing of all at the workplace.

Delivered by trainers with ‘lived experience’, our drug and alcohol awareness workshops and workplace mental health training will ‘stick’ with your people. (And can change lives…)

TAILORED TRAINING SOLUTIONS

Our one-hour ‘toolbox’ workshop, and two-hour, half-day and one-day training programs can be delivered at your workplace, at our training rooms or at any suitable preferred venue.

All training can be customised to your industry sector (with content targeted to your work environment) and delivered flexibly to your operational demands.
