Psychological Health and Safety
At times, workplaces can be a stressful environment that can affect an employee’s mental health. It is estimated that each week, 500,000 Canadians miss work due a mental health concern.
Employers play an important part in maintaining the positive mental health of their employees. Supporting your employees’ mental health can improve productivity, reduce absences, and increase worker retention.
The National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (the Standard) is a voluntary national standard that helps provide direction and guidance to organizations in the area of workplace mental health and safety.
Adopting the Standard can help your organization with:
- Creating an environment for positive mental health
- Financial performance
- Risk management
- Organizational recruitment
- Employee retention
WorkplaceNL can help you implement the Standard in your workplace.
