About the 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.

Who is it for?

The Masterclass series is for senior leaders in human resources, workforce strategy, work safety or wellbeing-related functions in mining. Participants will be guided through the Thrive at Work Framework to unpack how mining workplaces can support all employees to get well, stay well and be the best they can be.

The Masterclass series aims to upskill participants to take stock of their company’s current mental health and wellbeing policy and practices, and to identify: areas to retain and leverage; and opportunities to refine and mature current practices. Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in a community of practice and share learnings and challenges in their respective Thrive at Work journeys.

Three customised toolkits will be developed in consultation with the participants during the masterclass series to provide practical tools to tackle known health and safety risks to mental health in mining workplaces.
