On March 15 John Agioritis and Dany Théberge will present “A Legal Perspective on Psychological Health & Safety” at the 2023 Psychological Health & Safety in the Workplace Conference in Winnipeg.
Hosted by CPHR Manitoba, the conference will focus on the 13 factors outlined in the CSA Group’s Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace Standard. The Standard provides a voluntary set of guidelines to assist organizations in promoting mental health and preventing psychological harm at work.
John and Dany’s presentation will cover an employer’s workplace health and safety obligations as they relate to the psychological health of employees. They will discuss the obligations of employers and employees under workplace health and safety, workers compensation and accessibility legislation, and actions employers can take to both address psychosocial factors in the workplace and support employees.
