Psychological Health and Safety Management System (PHSMS)
A provincial Psychological Health and Safety Management System (PHSMS) will provide tools and resources to improve psychological health and safety in the workplace. It will include a new framework for implementing the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (the Standard) that promotes psychological wellbeing and actively prevents harm to worker mental health. More than 300,000 people working in healthcare will benefit from this initiative.
We are collaborating with the Ministry of Health and Board Partners (employers, unions, and physicians) on defining the scope of this work.
