An Organizational Readiness Approach
Building a PHS program incorporating all elements described in each program component may seem like a momentous task. However, in most cases, the workplace will already have many program elements in place, perhaps linked to existing programs such as workplace violence prevention.
Recognizing that it may not be feasible to develop and implement a full program all at once, PSHSA’s program allows workplaces to evaluate readiness, assess current state and approach program development one piece at a time, based on current need. Each program component (Prevention, Intervention, Recovery/Return to Work) is broken down into supporting resources to support workplaces who are Getting Started, Moving Forward or implementing Promising Practices.
