With a sharp focus on health and well-being, Kristy assists leaders in developing purpose-driven, employee focused workplace cultures that support and respect workers as individuals. In her role as Specialized Consultant – Healthy Workplaces, she understands that, to thrive, workers need to be supported by an integrated approach that includes physical, mental and social wellbeing.
“Often employers don’t understand their role in keeping workers both physically and psychologically healthy and safe. By helping employers leverage their existing health and safety programs to include psychological hazards and reduce the risk of mental harm to workers, my role at WSPS allows me the opportunity to educate and get people excited about mental health in the workplace.”
Kristy is a Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP), and a Certified Psychological Health and Safety Advisor (CMHA). She continues to advance her education, pursuing a Degree in Psychology through Athabasca University. Harnessing the knowledge and experience gained in the field, she developed the Workplace Violence and Harassment Prevention: Situational Awareness and De-escalation Course for WSPS. Seeing the positive impact of her work on employee well-being is what keeps her motivated and inspired.
“The field of psychological health and safety is new and there are always exciting developments. Many employers are just starting their psychological health and safety journey and I get to help support them in making changes that impact workers in big ways. It’s rewarding to see how our work together is having such lasting and meaningful change.”
