Building Psychologically Healthy Workplaces, June 3-7

Current research confirms that mental health issues are prevalent in BC workplaces. Workers who experience mental health issues face incredible challenges in the workplace. Many are misunderstood, stigmatized, and under-utilized. From an organizational effectiveness and sustainability perspective, this is a significant business issue and one that requires attention. In a world where shortages of critical skills are, and will continue to be, a priority for many organizations, we cannot afford to allow the situation to continue.

Workplace stress, bullying, harassment, and violence are increasingly the predominant issue for Canadians. Awareness of the staggering economic cost of workplace stress and related issues ($51 billion annually) grows steadily. Research also points to stress as a contributing factor in actual workplace accidents, injuries, and violence, making it a major factor in OH&S.

This course looks at all of the various workplace psycho­social factors and works on developing and implementing an effective plan that will improve the psychological health and safety of a workplace. The course examines strategies that eliminate, minimize, and accommodate psychological health issues.

Return to Work: Getting Beyond Light Duties, June 10-14

This course is designed to equip participants with tools and strategies for successful work reintegration outcomes. Participants will explore leading research and learn the principles of good work reintegration practices and the duty to accommodate. The course has a strong focus on the analysis and interpretation of human rights obligations and particularly the duty to accommodate.

Barriers to successful work reintegration are addressed with a focus on attitudinal barriers and their elimination using the social model of disability and therapeutic return to work principles. An in-depth comparison between older methods of disability management and the newer, progressive disability prevention model is presented and participants learn about the paradigm shift from management to prevention.

Investigating Bullying and Harassment, June 10-14
 
Workplace bullying and harassment can compromise the mental and physical health of workers. To address this health and safety issue, this course will equip participants with the knowledge and confidence to undertake thorough and impartial investigations into allegations of workplace bullying and harassment as defined in health and safety law and policy.

Participants' skills will be developed and practiced through role play in planning, research, interviewing techniques, and analysis in order to conduct impartial investigations. Particular attention will be paid to the emotional and sensitive effect that alleged bullying and harassment has on the workplace. Thorough and impartial investigations are necessary to not only resolve the complaint, but also to educate and ensure proper recommendations follow to prevent further incidents from happening.
