Workers Health & Safety Centre

Prioritizing and creating mentally safe and healthy workplaces

The dialogue around workplace mental health remains prevalent. Discussions across Canadian workplaces continue to draw concern for worker well-being.
While studies have shown that health care workers, first responders and educators report higher frequencies of trauma and stress at work, workers in every industry face workplace mental health challenges – research and worker experiences tell us greater attention must be paid to workplace factors affecting worker mental health – factors from reasonable job demands/job control to worker engagement, physical security, and respect. 

Taking a proactive approach

To help workplaces create healthier, safer work, Workers Health & Safety Centre (WHSC), Ontario’s official occupational health and safety training centre supports workers, their representatives, supervisors and employers in public and private sectors in all industries with programs designed to:
  • identify mental health hazards,
  • encourage discussion on preventative and protective measures for safer and healthier work and,
  • provide the tools to identify signs of stress related impact.

For a limited time, WHSC is offering critical Workplace Mental Health Training at a discounted rate if booked in May. Don’t miss this chance to purchase training now for future dates throughout the summer.

Workplace Mental Health Training programs include:
  • Critical Incident and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Psychosocial Hazards and Workplace Mental Health
  • Stress in the Workplace
  • Workplace Violence and Harassment.

Training is offered virtually, as well as on-site for training a larger number of workers.
