Moving to Action Implementing Workplace Safety & Prevention Services' Mental Harm Prevention Roadmap 3 Building the "Roadmap" to psychological health and safety Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS), in partnership with The Conference Board of Canada, developed a Mental Harm Prevention Roadmap (referred to as the "Roadmap"). This Roadmap is aligned to the three tenets of the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace. 1 These tenets are to prevent mental harm, promote mental health, and resolve incidents or concerns in the workplace. 2 1 The National Standard is also referred to as the "CAN/CSA-Z1003-13/BNQ 9700-803/2013." (See CSA Group, "Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace.") 2 CSA Group, "Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace." Introduction The Roadmap was created using an evidence- based approach to assist employers in supporting employees to achieve their psychological health and safety goals. As organizations begin to implement, the Roadmap is expected to evolve over time. (See Exhibit 1.) An evidence-based interface The Roadmap was created as a user-friendly interface based on the National Standard for organizations. The focus is on using building blocks to advance psychological health and safety in the workplace. The Roadmap facilitates the creation of mental health strategies appropriate for the needs of Canadian organizations. As well, it helps guide intentional action by employers to reduce mental harm and promote mental health in alignment with the recommendations of the National Standard.
