PSYCHOLOGICAL HEALTH & SAFETY
Preparedness | Response | Recovery
The strategic pillars of a psychological health and safety system are: prevention of harm (the psychological safety of employees), promotion of health (promoting and maintaining psychological health), and the resolution of incidents or concerns. This can be looked at as Preparedness, Response, and Recovery (resolution of the psychological impact/concern). Both the workplace and the individual have a shared responsibility for maintaining and improving that well-being because of the diversity of influences on a person’s psychological well-being.
This would be considered pre-incident planning; being prepared for “worst case” incidents.
