Workplace Restoration: Emerging Psychological Health & Safety Practices

In our role as leaders and managers, we know that the result of an investigation, complaint or other difficult incident can impact psychological health and safety for complainants, respondents and others. If you haven’t experienced these issues yet, you can be sure that despite all efforts to create a family culture and respectful workplace, a complaint or protracted conflict will surface.

Workplace Restoration is an emerging process developed to support those involved to re-establish harmonious working relationships, whether among individuals, within a team, or a wider unit impacted by these situations. Early engagement in the restoration of a healthy workplace is an important responsibility of employers and ultimately supports the business lines and operational requirements of any organization.

Highlights of this interactive presentation include:

* Learn the Five Phases of a Workplace Restoration Model and discover why Restoration is important.

* Explore the role of the leader/manager in restoring damaged working relationships.

* Examine a case study to generate discussion and learning.

Participants supporting employees in any organization and of all skill levels will benefit from this session.

Be Safe Not Sorry

In this dynamic session, learn how to handle the ultimate “what if”. Learn what types of crime are occurring in our society and how to safely prevent and manage any potentially dangerous situation. This session will give you the mental and physical tools to be in control of any verbal or physical conflict.

Even though employers/security/police have responsibilities to ensure their employees’ safety, the employee is still responsible to make wise choices to prevent putting themselves in harm’s way. Gain insights on what to do and what not to do if faced with a violent situation whether at work, in transit or at home. Review a case study of workplace violence. Discuss how to create your own personal safety plans and look at how others have handled violent crime.
