Employers and unions are accustomed to dealing with mental health in a reactive way. They participate in processes to accommodate workers with mental health conditions or to compensate workers who have experienced traumatic events. This approach is now widely recognized as inadequate. This program is designed provide participants with the tools and knowledge necessary to adopt a proactive approach to mental health and to implement or improve their workplace psychological health and safety system.
Participants will leave this workshop ready to
- Identify the 13 factors can affect mental health at work
- Assess psychosocial hazards in the workplace
- Implement control measures to minimize workplace threats to mental health
- Promote a workplace culture that is supportive of worker psychological health and safety
