Workplace Mental Health: Defining Your JHSCs Involvement
Creating a psychologically safe and healthy workplace requires meaningful participation of stakeholders. With the increasing focus on workplace mental health, Joint Health and Safety Committees (JHSCs) need to define their role and level of involvement. However, many are confused and fearful of getting involved.
This one-day workshop, based on the National Standard of Canada on Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace, will provide a strategy for defining the JHSCs level of involvement and helpful tools for carrying out their agreed upon roles and responsibilities.
The workshop agenda includes:
- Clarifying the JHSCs role and level of involvement;
- Tools and techniques for addressing PH&S in workplace inspections, hazard reports and incident investigations; and
- A systematic method for addressing mental health issues that come to the attention of the JHSC or HSR: and
- Models for integration with other workplace committees (e.g. PH&S committee, wellness committee).
Participants receive a workbook for Defining JHSC Involvement in Workplace Mental Health, which includes decision-making tools, suggested amendments to the Terms of Reference and tools for addressing PH&S issues that come to their attention through workplace inspections, hazard reports and incident investigations. As a bonus, each participating organization receives a 30 minute follow up coaching call with Elizabeth within 6 weeks following the course to help address any further questions on application in your organization.
This workshop is offered as a public session or an in-house course, either in person or via video-conference.
Fee: $395 + HST per person (Two or more participants from the same organization, will receive a $50 discount each.)
