BUILDING PSYCHOLOGICALLY HEALTHY WORKPLACES PROGRAM
Mental Health is the psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioural adjustment.
It includes an individual's ability to enjoy life, and create a balance between life activities and efforts to achieve psychological resilience. Psychological health and safety refers to the absence of harm and/or threat of harm to mental well-being that a worker might experience in a workplace.
The Health & Safety Centre has developed a distinct stream of training that creates an effective plan designed to improve the psychological health of all workplaces.
The curriculum focuses on personal safety factors as well as organizational factors and culture that are important to address.
Our week-long training course confronts stress in the workplace, challenging offensive behaviours, prevention of violence and understanding the CSA standard (Z-1003-13 Psychological Health & Safety). The training concentrates on the prevention and the accommodation of mental health issues in the workplace.
A psychologically safe workplace is one that allows no significant injury to employee mental health in negligent, reckless or intentional ways and one in which every reasonable effort is made to protect the mental health of employees.
A workplace with an effective plan and strong commitment to psychological health will result in an enhanced ability to enjoy life, and create a balance between life activities and efforts to achieve psychological resilience.
