Let’s move beyond recognition toward deliberate action to create and maintain a
healthy/safe workplace.

What is a psychologically safe workplace?

A psychologically safe workplace is:
  • One that allows no significant injury to employee mental health in negligent, reckless or intentional ways.
  • One in which every reasonable effort is made to protect the mental health of employees. (Shain, 2009)
HR Proactive recommends:

What is mental injury?
  • Not the same as mental illness
  • Doesn’t always require medical evidence
  • Reasonable foreseeable and significant harm to a fellow workers’ mental health resulting in their temporary or long term inability to function as normal at work and/or at home
Typical forms of mental injury
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Burnout
Psychologically safe/healthy workplace practices can be grouped into five categories:
  • Employee involvement
  • Work-life balance
  • Employee growth & development
  • Health & safety
  • Employee recognition
Let HR Proactive Inc. help you create customized training program(s) that fosters employee well-being and enhances organizational performance.
