Psychological health and safety in the workplace

The National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace, commonly known as "The Standard," is an innovative framework developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada in collaboration with employers, unions, and experts in law and policy.

A collaborative initiative for healthier workplaces: The National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace, commonly known as "The Standard," is an innovative framework developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada in collaboration with employers, unions, and experts in law and policy. This comprehensive guide offers a suite of voluntary guidelines, tools, and resources designed to prevent psychological harm and foster psychological health in workplaces.

The importance of adopting the standard: While it is voluntary for employers to adopt it, their responsibility towards ensuring a psychologically healthy and safe workplace is not. Seven distinct areas of law underline an employer's obligation to protect, promote, and accommodate the psychological health and safety of employees. This emphasizes integrating The standard's principles into workplace practices to fulfill legal obligations and promote a healthier work environment.
