Abstract:

"The Careful Workplace is about psychological health, safety and wellbeing in the workplace in light of the new Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Standard CSA Z1003/BNQ 9700-803 on Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace, which the author was instrumental in helping to develop. The book covers the implications of the new Standard for the legal aspects of mental health in the workplace and psychological safety at work. In many ways, the book is about a new employee relations paradigm in treating employees with dignity and respect by doing no foreseeable physical or mental harm to workers. The central thesis of the book is that achievement of the careful workplace is assisted greatly by adopting the new National Standard in an authentic and comprehensive manner. The book places the Standard in the historical context of occupational health and safety development and of the evolution of the employment relationship itself. It also functions as a practical guide to implementing the Standard at both strategic and cultural levels. It also examines the economic and societal case for regulating the "front end" of the Standard which deals with the assessment of psychosocial risk levels and provides an example of how this might look."--Publisher's website.
