Canada’s voluntary Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace exemplifies a nationwide strategy to promote the psychosocial wellbeing of workers, with emphasis on primary prevention. With an engaging tone and design, “Assembling the Pieces – An Implementation Guide to the National Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace” defines the issue of workplace psychological health and safety, and it serves as a roadmap for how employers can address the issue. Though it’s based on the Canadian standard, the guide will be helpful to any employer committed to proactively meeting the psychological needs of its workforce.
