Psychological health and safety in the workplace

sante psychologique au travail

Standard CAN/CSA-Z1003-13/BNQ 9700-803
Psychological health and safety in the workplace – Prevention, promotion, and guidance to staged implementation

Many companies realize the value of their employees and want to promote their health. In terms of psychological health and safety, many steps can be taken. But how? And where do we start? To answer these questions and guide companies in their efforts, the BNQ and CSA Group developed CAN/CSA-Z1003-13/BNQ 9700-803. Instigated by the Mental Health Commission of Canada, this standard specifies the requirements for establishing a documented and systematic method for creating and maintaining a psychologically healthy and safe workplace.

The standard applies to every type of organization and provides a framework for the creation and continuous improvement of a psychologically healthy and safe workplace, particularly in terms of:

  • Identifying and eliminating workplace hazards that pose a risk of psychological harm to workers;
  • Evaluating and controlling workplace risks associated with hazards that cannot be eliminated;
  • Introducing structures and practices that promote and support psychological health and safety in the workplace;
  • Promoting a culture that fosters psychological health and safety at work.
