abstract
"As author and Occupational Health & Safety specialist, Dianne Dyck, states in the preface to this ground-breaking publication, most Canadian companies and organizations have an Occupational Health & Safety Management System. Historically, however, those systems focused primarily on the physical, and not the psychological, health and safety of employees. With the release of the Canadian Standard on Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace in 2013, employers now have new performance expectations to meet. And that's what makes – and necessary – resource. Features and Benefits: Diane Dyck, with contributions from a number of industry experts, produced A Practical Guide to Psychological Health & Safety in the Workplace – the first book in Canada that is dedicated to managing employees' psychological health and safety. It offers readers a comprehensive overview of the psychological health and safety issues most commonly faced in today's workplaces, including: A discussion of what constitutes a toxic work environment and the effect it can have on employee health and safety; An explanation of the practical application of the new Canadian Standard on Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace; A description of the most effective workplace assessment and measurement processes; Leveraging this information, readers will be better able to implement and maintain a successful Psychological Health & Safety Management System (PHSMS). In addition, this practical reference book includes useful appendices and tools that employers and other professionals can use to track the organization's PHSMS outcome measures. Finally, the glossary of defined terms offers a quick reference guide for understanding workplace psychological health and safety issues."--Publisher's website.
