What’s in the Mental Health Training Course?
Our Mental Health training course is built to regulation standards. This class discusses topics including stressors, risk factors, signs and symptoms, suicide, myths, mental wellness, treatment, and more.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam.
Why do I need mental health training?
OSHA doesn’t have a specific standard for mental health training. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”
Canada also does not have a specific standards regarding mental health. However, the Employment Equity Act and the Canadian Human Rights Act allow employees to not be discriminated against and have an equal chance to work, no matter their race, gender, age, or disability.
Because of these requirement, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with mental health. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.
