WORKPOSITIVECI Update

  |   News & Events

Brought to you by the State Claims Agency (SCA), the Health and Safety Authority (HSA), CISM Network Ireland and supported by Employee Wellbeing Ltd, Work PositiveCI is a free, online, easy to use, innovative, confidential, psychosocial risk management process.

The Work PositiveCI process is aligned with the Psychosocial Risk Management European Framework (Prima-EF) and is the first psychosocial risk management process specific to critical incidents in Europe.

Pilot and validation

Overseen by the Enterprise Risk Management Section (ERMS), Work PositiveCI was piloted in 15 organisations, involving approximately 12,000 employees across a number of enterprises. Following the pilot, a successful validation analysis was undertaken by Innovation Ulster Limited/Ulster University. This involved a review of the process, the bespoke wellbeing measure and the relationships between critical incident specific responses, psychosocial working conditions and mental health.

The ERMS launched Work PositiveCI in March 2017 with structured guidance enabling organisations to develop an action plan to mitigate against workplace stressors, employee psychological wellbeing and critical incident exposure in the workplace.
