The Health Service Executive (HSE) believes that our employees are our most important asset in the delivery of high quality health and social services. The HSE Work PositiveCI is a completely confidential psychosocial risk management process that helps managers identify ways to improve employee health, safety and wellbeing.
This website and its contents has been adapted and redesigned specifically for the Healthcare sector which includes the HSE and HSE funded agencies.
Identify and measure psychosocial risk
Work PositiveCI assesses workplace stressors, employee psychological wellbeing, critical incident exposure, workplace safety culture and lifestyle behaviours. If not properly managed these factors can lead to poor mental health and wellbeing, increased sickness absence, presenteeism and lower productivity
Receive actionable feedback
It provides an easy-to-understand report identifying risk areas. An action plan provides clear guidance to improve employee wellbeing, safety and health with specific support and guidance in addressing critical incident exposure for HSE staff.
Implementation of Work PositiveCI can lead to high impact results, such as reducing sickness absence and turnover and increasing employee engagement, wellbeing and productivity.
Comply with current legislation
Work PositiveCI will assist Managers to meet their legal requirements under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005, and other European Legislation, with regard to reducing exposure to psychosocial hazards.
Comply with HSE Policies and Frameworks
Work PositiveCI will assist Managers to comply with the HSE’s Policies on the Prevention and Management of Stress in the Workplace, 2018 and Preventing and Managing Critical Incident Stress, 2012 as well as the requirements of the HSE’s People Strategy 2015-2018.
Work PositiveCI is completely confidential. The data is processed by an independent service provider in compliance with applicable Data Protection legislation. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
