Psychological Safety Blog

COVID-19 has arrived in Canada and we are in uncertain times.

To help leaders and their employees face the challenges ahead, Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS) and HowattHR have launched this Psychological Safety Blog. It will be a trusted source for information, tools and resources to help leaders protect the health, safety and wellness of their people.

At this time, when individuals are being asked to practice social distancing, and organizations are implementing corporate isolation to limit the spread of COVID-19, these blog posts will focus on promoting mental health and preventing mental harms.

We invite you to comment, share and ask questions, but remind you that discussions will be monitored.

We encourage you to check back often for updates and new resources.
