Developing a new screening tool of psychosocial hazards

IWH lends tool development expertise to StressAssess, OHCOW’S new measure of toxic workplaces. As chronic mental stress becomes recognized as a compensable work-related injury by a growing number of compensation systems across Canada, workplaces have more reason than ever to tackle toxic work environments as they would any other safety hazard.

To support efforts by workplaces to address psychosocial hazards, the Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW) and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) released a tool called StressAssess earlier this year. The free online survey tool, validated with statistical analysis by the Institute for Work & Health (IWH), can be used by workplaces to anonymously, collectively and confidentially gather information about current work conditions and psychosocial hazards.
