Building Psychologically Healthy Workplaces

Course Code : 1BPHW

Current research confirms that mental health issues are prevalent in B.C. workplaces. Workers who experience mental health issues face incredible challenges in the workplace. Many are misunderstood, stigmatized, and under-utilized. From an organizational effectiveness and sustainability perspective, this is a significant business issue and one that requires attention. In a world where shortages of critical skills are, and will continue to be, a priority for many organizations, we cannot afford to allow the situation to continue. Workplace stress, bullying, harassment, and violence are increasingly the predominant issue for Canadians. Awareness of the staggering economic cost of workplace stress and related issues ($51 billion annually) grows steadily. Research also points to stress as a contributing factor in actual workplace accidents, injuries, and violence, making it a major factor in OH&S. This course looks at all of the various workplace psychosocial factors and works on developing and implementing an effective plan that will improve the psychological health and safety of a workplace. The course examines strategies that eliminate, minimize, and accommodate psychological health issues. Prerequisite: Health & Safety Level 1 recommended
