Our first full day workshop on Psychological Health & Safety & the new National Standard had a great deal of interest from the community and we filled up quickly.
Participants spent the day discussing mental health, stigma, workplace accommodation and learning about the new National Standard on Psychological Health and Safety.
Developed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group) and the Bureau de normalisation du Québec, the Standard is a voluntary set of guidelines, tools and resources focused on promoting employees’ psychological health and preventing psychological harm due to workplace factors. Find more information on the Standard here.
Thanks to all the participants for their helpful feedback as we continue to develop our plans for how to best support workplaces protect the psychological health and safety of their workers.
