An SGS introduction course to mental health and wellbeing for health and safety managers.

Traditionally, the health and safety profession focused on the physical risks to health and safety at work. Modern day life, however, has become increasingly complex and there are now a whole raft of additional health and safety risks that have to be considered. These are the psychosocial risks that can impact positively or negatively on the mental health and wellbeing of employees. As a result, health and safety managers are becoming increasingly involved in driving mental health and wellbeing strategies within their organisations.

Our mental health and wellbeing course provides an introduction to the topic for health and safety managers.
