Safety & Health Week May 1st – May 7th, 2022

The goal of Safety and Health Week (formerly known as NAOSH) is to focus employers, employees, partners and the public on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home, and in the community. This goal seeks to improve attitudes towards safety, increase understanding of the importance of occupational safety and health, foster a safety-minded culture with increased cooperation and assist in team building and improved communication between employees and employers, safety committees and safety professionals.

 

One of the most important aspects of Safety and Health Week is awareness. This year, Service Hospitality has some exciting plans from May 1st to May 7th to recognize and support Safety and Health week in our industries. We will be highlighting the importance of following Occupational Health & Safety legislation by discussing some of the top 10 OH&S Contraventions issued in Saskatchewan in 2021 in the community service and hospitality businesses. Look out for our website articles and social media posts throughout the week to learn more.

CMHA’s Mental Health Week also runs from May 2nd to May 8th, 2022. 

Mental Health week is a Canadian tradition, with communities, schools and workplaces rallying to celebrate, protect and promote mental health. The core objective of Mental Health Week is to promote mental health because mental health is something we can promote and protect, not just something we can lose.

1 in 5 people in Canada will personally experience a mental health problem or illness.  While mental health refers to anyone’s state of mental, and emotional well-being, mental illnesses are diagnosed as conditions that affect thoughts and behaviors. Though anyone can have moments of poor mental health, not everyone has a mental illness. Regardless of whether we have a mental illness, our mental health is something we can protect and nurture.

This year, Mental Health Week is all about the importance of empathy – May 2-8, 2022 – #GetReal is about how to help. We may be different, but that doesn’t make us rivals. Let’s stop polarizing and start empathizing. Be there for each other when times are hard and be ready to listen. You don’t have to agree to understand, and you don’t have to fix it to help.

Fighting the mental health stigmas in our workplace is a start in helping our employees find that empathy.
