WorkShift Podcast: Leading Psychological Safety in the Workplace with Dr. Jackie Kinley and Deepak Prasad

In recent years, WCB Nova Scotia has seen an increase in the number of psychological and complex workplace injury claims, where mental health-related issues make it more difficult for workers to recover from physical injuries.

In episode two of the WorkShift podcast, former WCB CEO Stuart MacLean discusses the importance of ensuring psychological safety is as important as physical safety in a workplace with guests Dr. Jackie Kinley and Deepak Prasad.

How do organizations ensure psychological health and wellness are supported and developed in the workplace? How is the conversation about mental health changing how safety leaders need to show up?
