NOTES

1. The term ‘mental health’ is defined by the World Health Organization as ‘a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community’. The terms ‘mental health’ and ‘psychological health’ are equivalent.

2. The term ‘organisational disruption’ refers to the significant disturbance to the operations of an organisation or work area caused by a ‘disruptive event’. Disruptive events may be internal or external to the organisation and may or may not be foreseeable. Examples include: public health risks (such as epidemics and pandemics), natural disasters, public inquiries and litigation.

3. The terms ‘occupational health and safety’ and ‘work health and safety’ are equivalent, and generally either can be used in the workplace.
