Safe Work / Mental Health Awareness Month October 2023

Safe Work / Mental Health Awareness Month October 2023

Get ready for national Safe Work month this October

June, 2023

Karen Maher was recently named as one of Ovations International top speakers in the Health & Safety / Mental Health arena. Karen was very humbled to be part of this great line of up of speakers covering such an important area.

Hiring a motivational speaker for safe work month is a great way to raise awareness and give your leaders and employees important insight into creating a safe and healthy working environment.

The fear of speaking up in our workplaces is still very real and we all know the consequences that can occur within organisations when people don’t feel safe and supported to speak up about concerns they have. Having a workplace where people can speak freely without fear of humiliation, punishment or other negative consequences, is important for people to feel empowered to share their perspectives and ideas.

With changes to how organisations must manage psychosocial hazards now in place, the keynote ‘Psychological Safety – Creating a Speak Up Culture’ has been a really popular choice with our clients. In this keynote, Karen takes a deep dive into ‘psychological safety’, explaining what it is, and how we can create and instil this important concept within our workplaces.
