The Research Partnership Program (RPP) was designed to give agency leaders in human services a process to develop and grow health and wellness initiatives that will have a strong possibility of creating real change. The purposes of the program are: to stimulate wellness initiatives, to work collaboratively using a participatory approach, and to develop models of change. Agencies participating in the RPP will actively be involved in assessment, planning initiatives, implementation of their program, creating communication and policy materials, and program evaluation. Representatives from these agencies will participate in the Alberta-wide Health and Wellness Conference in 2017, to share success stories and lessons learned from their agency’s program. We hope to develop case studies from these agencies that can further inform our HWHP framework and provide examples for other Alberta human-services agencies. We would like to identify other interested agencies in each of the sub-sectors to continue this work.

When you're at work, your team members want to be able to rely on the other members of the team. All of them. Good team members are reliable. They do the right thing at the right time for the good of the team. Reliability goes a long way in building your reputation.

The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) worked with the CSA and the Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ) to develop The National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace in 2013. The Commission describes it as “a set of voluntary guidelines, tools and resources intended to guide organizations in promoting mental health and preventing psychological harm at work.” Employers, governments and regulatory authorities, service providers, policy and legal specialists, and unions were involved in the development of the National Standard. Over time and with training, the National Standard could be a very important tool for unions in advocating for better mental health practices in the workplace.

Workplace Congruence and Occupational Outcomes among Social Service Workers Br J Soc Work. 2016 Jun; 46(4): 1096–1114. Published online 2015 Jan 28.
Workplace expectations reflect an important consideration in employee experience. A higher prevalence of workplace congruence between worker and employer expectations has been associated with higher levels of productivity and overall workplace satisfaction across multiple occupational groups. Little research has investigated the relationship between workplace congruence and occupational health outcomes among social service workers. This study sought to better understand the extent to which occupational congruence contributes to occupational outcomes by surveying unionised social service workers (n = 674) employed with the Government of Alberta, Canada. Multiple regression analysis shows that greater congruence between workplace and worker expectations around workloads, workplace values and the quality of the work environment significantly: (i) decreases symptoms related to distress and secondary traumatic stress; (ii) decreases intentions to leave; and (iii) increases overall life satisfaction. The findings provide some evidence of areas within the workplace of large government run social welfare programmes that can be better aligned to worker expectations to improve occupational outcomes among social service worker

The impact of onsite workplace health-enhancing physical activity interventions on worker productivity: a systematic review.Occup Environ Med. 2015 Jun;72(6):401-12. doi: 10.1136/oemed-2014-102678. Epub 2015 Mar 16.
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of onsite workplace health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA) programmes on worker productivity. The PROSPERO registration number is CRD42014008750. A search for controlled trials or randomised controlled trials (RCTs) that investigated the effects of onsite workplace HEPA programmes on productivity levels of working adults was performed. Risk of bias of included studies was assessed, and the inter-rater reliability of the quality assessment was analysed. Qualitative synthesis of available evidence is presented. Eight studies were included in the review. There is consistent evidence that onsite workplace HEPA programmes do not reduce levels of sick leave. There appears to be inconsistent evidence of the impact of onsite workplace HEPA programmes on worker productivity.

Hitting the Nail on the Head: Prioritizing Safety at Your Nonprofit
Safety incidents at a nonprofit can result in the loss of life or permanent injury, plummeting employee morale, reputational damage, insurance claims and costly financial and human resource burdens for the nonprofit. Sector leaders must safeguard their missions from these consequences, and strive to cultivate safe environments for their employees, volunteers, and service recipients.

Workplace Safety Preserves and Protects
Workplace safety is about preventing injury and illness to employees and volunteers in the workplace. Thus, it’s about protecting the nonprofit’s most valuable asset: its staff members. By protecting the staff’s well-being, you can reduce the amount of money paid out in health insurance benefits, workers’ compensation benefits and the cost of wages for temporary help. Also factor in saving the cost of lost-work hours, time spent orienting temporary help, and the programs and services that may suffer due to fewer service providers, stress on those providers who are picking up the absent workers’ share or, worse case, having to suspend or shut down a program due to lack of providers.

My Risk Assessment is a self-assessment tool that guides users through a series of questions about your risk management processes and specific risks that your nonprofit faces. After users complete one or more of the 13 modules discussing different risks, My Risk Assessment offers advice based on your self-assessment results in a custom report and executive summary. My Risk Assessment includes a risk ranking function that allows a team to collaborate to select and prioritize risks facing the organization. Risk ranking results are aggregated for review and discussion by your team.

Safety Leadership is NOT Safety Management
Safety performance is driven by the leadership of the organization. Leaders establish values, develop procedures, and enforce accountability for their safety programs. Put another way, safety leaders set the standards of safe behavior within their companies. We would obviously expect a safety leader to be someone who exhibits high SafetyDNA®, but leadership is more than just managing one’s own safety behaviors. A true safety leader also motivates his or her coworkers to strive for minimal risk exposure. First, I will discuss exactly what we mean by safety leadership and the actions performed by the employees who fill this role...

How we manage workplace and environmental health and safety issues is critical to workers, organizations, and the environment itself.

Legislation requiring employer compliance creates change and challenge for health, safety and environment (HSE) professionals who must act in the roles of motivator, change leader and enforcer. Employers are looking for people who can identify, evaluate, and communicate information about workplace and environmental conditions that may have adverse impacts on human health. They need people who have the knowledge and skills to plan and implement strategies to control and manage potential problems, and motivate proactive behaviour change.
