As the leading cause of short and long-term disability in Canadian workplaces, psychological health and safety impacts in Canada are substantial. However, in 2012 Canadian employers will have increased support for improving the psychological health and safety of their employees with the release of CSA Z1003, National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. When completed, the voluntary standard will provide organizations with tools to achieve measurable improvement in workplace psychological health and safety.
