Taking Action on Workplace Stress

Just in time for the fifth anniversary of the National Standard of Canada for
Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace, the Occupational Health
Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW) and the Canadian Centre for Occupational
Health and Safety (CCOHS) have collaborated to create StressAssess, a free
online survey tool to assist workplaces in identifying and addressing
psychosocial hazards that can lead to stress and mental injury.

StressAssess provides workplaces with an internationally recognized survey tool
to anonymously, collectively, and confidentially gather information about
current work conditions and psychosocial hazards. Administrators deploying the
survey in their workplace will be guided through a five step process supported
by instructions, templates, and reminders. Upon completion of the survey, a
summary report is provided. Along with comparisons against validated national
averages, it includes practical ideas for action to help workplaces address
identified concerns.

While the survey tool is meant to diagnose the workplace (not the worker), the
website also includes a personal edition for individuals interested in
measuring their own personal level and sources of stress.

StressAssess is available at www.stressassess.ca and a mobile app version is
currently in development.
