1. Protecting the physical and mental health of employees is of benefit to all stakeholders – employees, employers, insurers and society at large. The prevention of disability is a provincial imperative as safe, psychologically healthy and accommodating workplaces provides the foundation for enhanced productivity and economic growth. Conversations about disability prevention must include discussions about the impact of psychologically healthy and unhealthy workplaces on workers (including their families and communities) as well as on employers, insurers and society at large.

  2. More and more employers recognize the legal, financial and practical need to effectively address workplace psychological health and safety but are unsure where to start. Is their organization ready to change? What resources will they need? How will they know if their actions are effective? This session will provide an overview of Psychological Health and Safety: An Action Guide for Employers. The Guide is one of the key resources identified in the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. The session will take participants through a strategic, sequential planning process that will include identification of practical, evidence –informed actions that are readily accessible to all employers, regardless of size or sector.

  4. Research investigating factors influencing organizational safety culture, effective safety management and organizational learning is increasing. In 2013, the Canadian Safety Association (CSA) launched a new standard, Psychological health and safety in the workplace - Prevention, promotion, and guidance to staged implementation. This presentation will review different perspectives on safety culture and discuss factors that influence safety culture from what is known from research and reflecting on personal observations and experience gained over a career of 25 years in several industries and continents. The presentation will compare factors that enhance workplace safety, with factors that support organizational learning and psychological health and safety in the workplace. Is healthy safety culture a primer or antecedent for organizational learning and psychologically healthy workplaces? Understanding and identifying gaps in organizational learning, safety culture, and psychological mental health will assist occupational health and safety professionals and other stakeholders create better targeted implementation strategies to improve business performance and mitigate unnecessary disability.
