The Irish Health and Safety Authority (HSA) has launched the ‘Work Positive’ online tool to help companies manage the work-related stress and improve employees’ well-being.
Based on a ‘whole workforce’ approach and through a confidential psychosocial risk management process, Work Positive is for all workplace stressors but has a new additional piece specific to critical incidents in Ireland.
The four stages of the assessment include a preparatory step, the identification and measurement of the psychosocial risks and an action plan based on feedback provided via online reports. The final stage includes a review to evaluate the success measures, monitor on-going performance and determine areas for improvement.
The Work Positive process can be rolled out over a three to six month period and be re-used every few years. It is aligned with the Psychosocial Risk Management European Framework (Prima-EF).
