Over the last few years, psychological health and safety at work has become an area of increasing focus. Jeremy Lightfoot, the Chief Executive champion for the GHSL’s new Mentally Healthy Work Capability programme shares his thoughts on the importance of psychological health and safety at work in this article. He encourages other Chief Executives to join him in engaging with the programme, which is designed to build the necessary capability within executive leaders, health and safety and human resources leaders, and practitioners to effectively manage this critical risk.

“When we do psychological health and safety well, not only do we prevent harm to our workforce, we go further and also create the opportunity for workers to be well and thrive – supporting engagement, productivity and retention in our organisations.” - Jeremy Lightfoot, Chief Executive, Ara Poutama Aotearoa / Department of Corrections
