Thrive at Work in Mining Masterclass series

As a part of the State Government’s Mental Awareness, Respect and Safety (MARS) Program, the Future of Work Institute is developing a Thrive at Work in Mining Masterclass series for the mining industry to support companies at various stages of their journey towards building a mentally healthy workplace.
