              This webinar is being presented by Glyn Jones, M.A.Sc., CIH, CRSP. Glyn is a Partner in the firm EHS Partnerships Ltd.

              Managing Mental Health in the Workplace

              Employees in positions of leadership need to brush up on their mental health and psychological safety skills. Mental health and psychological safety seem to be the new science impacting the workplace. Of course, mental health has long been a serious issue for the medical community and the public health community but it is only quite recently that it now seems to be clearly on the agenda as a workplace health and safety issue. Workplaces have traditionally looked at workplace health from a strictly occupational health and safety perspective. To have a more complete or comprehensive approach, workplaces should also consider measures that may impact the mental health of workers. Change happens fast it seems and business leaders across Canada need to know more about mental health and psychological safety. It is time you brush up on these skills.

              A “mentally healthy workplace” is one in which mental health promotion is viewed as a strategy used to reduce risk factors associated with the development of mental illness. A “psychologically safe workplace” is one which employs strategies focused on preventing psychological injuries such as stress-induced emotional conditions and others. The concept of “psychological safety” involves preventing injury to the mental well-being of workers. A psychologically safe workplace is one that promotes employees' mental well-being and does not harm employees’ mental health through negligence, recklessness, or any other intentional ways. In this session we will explore the issue of mental health at work and discuss what programming would look like that would increase the psychological safety of workplaces.
