Mental Health, Wellbeing and our Capacity to be Resilient

Maintenance Stage
Day 01

Many macro-factors confront our maintenance and reliability workforce – machines replacing jobs, upheaval in the energy sector, FIFO schedules, relentless organisational change, and even war. Having to endure a pandemic over the past three years has accentuated these issues to crisis levels. This is taking enormous toll on our wellbeing and mental health, and our capacity to be resilient is being eroded. This is a wake-up call.

  • Resilience can be taught to leaders, managers, and workforces
  • The convergence between people’s personal lives and their work lives
  • The need to connect as human beings with emotions
  • FIFO workforce at a higher risk than the general workforce of stress and depression
  • Practical initiatives that combat the increase in mental health and wellbeing
  • The impact of a positive workplace on performance
  • How to build and shift workplace culture
  • Practical takeaway leadership tools and practices to influence culture
