Why it's important

  1. Our service prioritizes proactive measures to promote employee well-being, as a psychologically healthy and safe workplace improves mental health and enhances productivity and job satisfaction.
  2. The assessment process aligns organizations with the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (Psychological Safety Standard), a recognized framework for creating a mentally healthy workplace.
  3. We create personalized solutions by tailoring recommendations and educational resources to meet each organization's unique concerns and needs. This approach ensures that strategies are effective and relevant.

The process

  • Initial contact: We discuss your primary concerns regarding psychological health and safety in the workplace. During this stage, we inform you of the assessment process.
  • Leadership engagement: We meet with the leadership team to educate them about psychological health and safety in the workplace. This helps leaders understand the benefits of fostering a psychologically healthy workplace.
  • JOHSC Committee consultation: We consult with the Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee (JOHSC) to gather insights and perspectives from various stakeholders within the organization.
  • Individual meetings with leaders: We schedule 30-minute meetings to gather their observations, experiences, and concerns about psychological health and safety.
  • Data collection: We collect previous surveys from the last year and the current policy handbook from the organization to review data and obtain relevant information.
  • Site visit: We raise awareness for a site visit and schedule 2-3 days to conduct onsite observations, gather information, engage with frontline workers, and implement the Psychological Health & Safety in the Workplace Assessment tool.
  • Action plan: Following the assessment, we provide the organization with an action plan, which includes:
    • Sharing findings (gap analysis)
    • Creating recommendations and a strategy for implementation
    • Providing educational resources and tools tailored to the organization's unique concerns
    • Offering a framework to support psychological health and safety in the workplace
