The BC Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards Committee is a standing committee of the BC Psychological Association, and is comprised of psychologists, business leaders, academics and informed professionals who volunteer their time, commitment and expertise to further knowledge about creating psychologically healthy workplaces in BC.
Canada’s Safest Employers Awards recognize companies from all across Canada with outstanding accomplishments in promoting the health and safety of their workers. The award boasts 10 industry-specific categories, ranging from hospitality to mining and natural resources. Companies are judged on a wide range of occupational health and safety elements, including employee training, OHS management systems, incident investigation, emergency preparedness and innovative health and safety initiatives.
This progressive set of requirements provides a methodology for implementing the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. It allows you to focus your resources and initiatives onto one of the four drivers behind a healthy workplace to achieve a dramatic improvement in prevention of illness, reduction of lost time, and higher engagement behind employees.
