A happy workplace is a productive workplace.

That’s according to the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit, who wants to spread that message on Healthy Workplace Safety Month.

H.K.P.R. Workplace Health Liaison Lisa Van Der Vinne says when workplaces take the time and effort to support employee mental health, it pays off.

Van Der Vinne says if something is troubling an employee, that person should say something, but the employer should have a supportive environment.

Van Der Vinne adds an employee’s mental well being is just as important as their physical safety.
