If you think your business could be doing more to promote and maintain good psychological health in the workplace, you may wish to consider achieving ISO 45003 certification. ISO 45003 is a new global standard which has been designed to help organisations to improve work-related mental health.
Statistics aBout mental health and the workplace
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), poor mental health costs the world economy over $1 trillion each year. Data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggests that 1 in 5 people have reported the symptoms of mental health conditions like depression. However, another study carried out by The Health Foundation found that the number could be closer to 70%. The study found that many mental health issues were linked to stress, anxiety and boredom. These figures emphasise the need for improved mental health management across the world.
What are the aims of ISO 45003?
ISO 45003 has been designed to help companies to identify the circumstances, conditions and work-related demands which could negatively impact the mental health of employees. It also helps them to identify steps they could take to boost psychological health in the workplace. Companies and organisations from all sectors can benefit from ISO 45003. The standard aims to make workforces happier, more fulfilled and therefore more productive, which has obvious benefits for your business.
What benefits can ISO 45003 bring to your business?
Many companies that have achieved ISO 45003 say they have seen improvements in innovation, productivity and work performance. The standard has helped many businesses:
- Retain and attract the best staff. ISO 45003 certification can deliver a substantial boost to employee satisfaction.
- Reduce absenteeism.
- Increase productivity levels. This can make a business more profitable and prosperous.
- Identify mental health hazards including excessive workloads, unfair treatment, discrimination, unfulfilling work and poor working conditions so you can swiftly take steps to address them.
