Work Safe Saskatchewan: Psychological Health & Safety

Talking only goes so far, now is the time for action for your employees

Free resources to help you navigate workplace psychological health and safety


The COVID-19 pandemic has put a unique strain on employees’ psychological health, and as we re-open, the strain and stress will linger. Psychological health and safety should be at the forefront of every workplace’s recovery plan. WorkSafe Saskatchewan, in partnership with MyWorkplaceHealth, has created a resource centre to support leaders, employers and workers navigate psychological health and safety in the workplace.

In the past five years, psychological health claims have been on the rise in Saskatchewan.


What is psychological health and safety?

A psychologically healthy and safe workplace is a workplace that promotes workers’ psychological well-being and actively works to prevent harm to worker psychological health, including in negligent, reckless or intentional ways. There are 13 psychosocial factors that contribute to workplace psychological health and safety. Learn more about each one.

                                               An organization with good psychological and safety programs:

          • Offers services or benefits that address worker psychological and mental health.
          • Has a process in place to intervene if an employee looks distressed while at work.
          • Supports workers who are returning to work after time off due to a mental health condition.
          • Supports workers when they are dealing with personal or family issues.

Psychological health and safety is as important as physical health and safety

Psychological and social support in a workplace benefits employers and workers. It helps protect workers against stress and trauma at work and makes them more likely to seek and receive appropriate help when needed. Work stress can lead to physical symptoms, such as fatigue or headaches, or emotional symptoms like anxiety or burnout. This leads to increased costs, negative effects on productivity and a greater risk of incidents and injuries.
