Organizations implementing programs to more effectively address psychological health and safety are aware of the importance of evaluating such initiatives, but may not have the internal expertise or resources to carry out sophisticated, research-quality evaluation. In this presentation, I will highlight a pragmatic framework for planning initiatives, monitoring their implementation and evaluating key outcomes. The presentation will walk through the steps of evaluation: Evaluating and selecting actions, Stating evaluation questions, Identifying key participants, Specifying short and long-term outcomes, Adopting practical evaluation methods, Measuring the implementation process and Monitoring sustainment of change. I will incorporate experience gained by our research group in the process of assisting organizations to evaluate psychosocial risk and implementation of the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety. Our research group is committed to the principle that organizations can feasibly use systematic evaluation approaches to improve programs and thus the psychological health and safety of their workforce.
