Psychological Health and Safety

Psychological health is our ability to think, feel and behave in a way that allows us to perform effectively in our work environments, our personal lives and in society at large.

Psychological safety deals with identifying and lessening psychosocial risk factors and the effect they might have on an employee’s psychological well-being. Improving psychological safety at work involves taking precautions to prevent injury or danger to employees’ psychological health.
