The State Claims Agency (SCA), in collaboration with the Health and Safety Authority (HSA), CISM Network Ireland and Employee Wellbeing Ltd., hosted a workshop to engage with organisations who are interested in rolling out the Work Positive CI initiative – a psychosocial risk management process that helps organisations identify ways to improve employee wellbeing.
The workshop event, which took place on 7th March 2018, gave the 30 attendees an opportunity to learn about Work Positive CI and how it can benefit their organisations. This event also provided a forum for attendees to contribute to the discussion on workplace wellbeing and the important role it plays in mitigating risks and incidents in the workplace, as well as hear from other organisations and their intentions to implement the Work Positive CI process. Attendees were also briefed on the four stages of Work Positive CI, namely Prepare, Measure, Action Plan and Review through presentation material, group discussion and practical exercise activities.
This workshop was targeted at organisations that have signed up and expressed an interest in using the Work Positive CI framework.
Work Positive CI, which launched in March 2017, is a FREE easy to use, innovative, confidential, psychosocial risk management process to help organisations protect the psychological health and safety of workers in occupational groups likely to be exposed to critical incidents at work.

Work Positive CI is the first psychosocial risk management framework specific to critical incidents in Europe and incorporates an easy to use online risk assessment tool as part of the four step prepare, measure, action plan and review process which is aligned with the Psychosocial Risk Management European Framework (Prima-EF). Embedding the framework can benefit workplaces in the following ways:
