Mental health risks in the workplace

Safeguarding mental health in the workplace involves effectively addressing psychosocial risks. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), employers can achieve this by proactively implementing organizational interventions that specifically address working conditions and environments. These interventions aim to evaluate and subsequently mitigate, modify, or eliminate factors contributing to mental health risks in the workplace. Examples of organizational interventions encompass the introduction of flexible work schedules and the establishment of frameworks to address issues like workplace violence and harassment.
