In November last year we released a Health and Safety Priority Program for the water industry to achieve a step-change in the industry’s health and safety performance.
We're so pleased to see the deliverables - a maturity model, self assessment tool, how-to guide and water industry mental health framework - being integrated into our members' health and safety strategies, planning activities and processes.
Developing mentally healthy workplaces has long been a focus for WSAA, but COVID-19 has brought a renewed commitment. We will be progressing work under focus areas including flexible work design, measuring productivity, leadership capability, research and a review of the Mental Health Framework in light of the COVID-19 impacts. We will be looking to produce the following key deliverables:
- A compendium of case studies to complement the existing Mental Health Framework
- An initial framework to measure ‘’People Productivity’’ and reporting of key metrics
- Establishing a mechanism to foster collaboration on mental health research
- Initiatives to help the industry better understand and leverage the Mental Health Framework.
