Psychological Health and Safety Virtual Learning Series
Psychological hazards are in every workplace in Newfoundland and Labrador. No workplace is immune to the negative effects of these hazards on workers’ physical and mental health. Psychological hazards are found in how work is organized and managed and in the quality of relationships in the workplace.
The best way to control risk to workers is to find these hazards and put measures in place to lower the risk of psychological injury to workers.
The Psychological Health and Safety Virtual Learning Series is a week devoted to raising awareness of psychological health and safety in the workplace. Participants will learn practical solutions for lowering the risk of psychological hazards to workers’ mental health.
The latest statistics show that many individuals, families, workplaces and communities are affected by mental health issues in Canada.
