Do you ever feel:
- Pressured and physically or mentally exhausted because there’s too much work to do and not enough time or help to do it?
- An emotional toll because you don’t have the time or resources to care for a client/patient/customer the way you know it should be done?
- Frustrated because you don’t have control over how your work gets done, or because you lack support from supervisors or management to do your job?
- Anxious or ill because of the work environment or from being bullied, harassed, or subjected to threats of violence?
If you said YES to any of these questions, this is your opportunity to help the Union act on workplace stress!
The Union has partnered with the Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW) (www.ohcow.on.ca) to launch the Stress Assess Survey based on the internationally recognized Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire.
The purpose is to determine the psychosocial (psychological and social) factors that are most affecting our workplace. Through this survey, the Union will gain invaluable data about how these factors are affecting you at work and where we need to focus to ensure the membership’s mental well-being. With the company moving forward with mental health initiatives and changes in the law that recognize psychological safety at work, it’s crucial that we hear from you.
Participation is voluntary, but we are striving for a minimum 30% participation rate to get the quality of data we need. Please know that all responses are anonymous and that only aggregate data will be used for reports and shared with the Union.
The Survey is a bit long since it must respect specific parameters to gather accurate data on all 13 recognized psychosocial factors. You can expect to spend on average 10-20 minutes. Each question is multiple choice, with the option to add written comments.
If you have any concerns or questions about the survey, please email email@example.com.
