Course Aim

The aim of this course is to equip attendees with the knowledge and understanding to develop a structured approach to workplace mental health based on current guidance and standards.

 

Employee Support Therapy (EST)

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) funded research by the University of Nottingham and produced guidance for business on how they can develop a structured approach to workplace mental health. The findings from research by The University of Nottingham reveal both positives and areas for concern, including inadequate boundaries for employees and a lack of proof that Mental Health First Aid (MHFA ) is effective.

At the Institute of Directors in London, experts from a range of bodies, including IOSH, the Trades Union Council (TUC) mental health charity Mind, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and the Health and Safety Executive( HSE) met to discuss the findings and shape new guidance for businesses.

IOSH is urging its members to think prevention, safety, compliance, risk assessment, guidance, and Employee Support Therapy (EST ) and calls for a structured approach to address the many issues surrounding workplace mental health.

In 2021 the global standard of ISO/FDIS 45003 was published. This is the first international standard to provide guidance on psychological health and safety at work. The new standard will address many safety risks that can contribute to work-related stress, depression and anxiety and adversely impact worker mental health.
