Practical steps: creating a mentally healthy workplace

Emma Ashurst, CCOHS

It can be challenging to create and successfully maintain a health and safety program that addresses both psychological and physical well-being equitably. Using the National Standard as the foundation, this interactive session outlines how workplaces can address psychological hazards in their health and safety programs alongside other traditional workplace hazards, while creating a culture that is courageous and clear in reporting all types of hazards, present and potential. Use this opportunity to workshop with colleagues and other organizations as well, to determine through health and safety strategies and supports, how to recognize, assess, control and evaluate what is needed within your workplace environment.
