For more than a decade, Guarding Minds at Work has helped employers protect the psychological health and safety of employees at work. Now, the assessment and its accompanying resources are enhanced to better reflect the challenges in today’s workplace.


Guarding Minds is available to all employers-large or small, or in the public and private sector-for free!


Tools included are 3 surveys and links to many free resources to help you measure and improve psychological health and safety at work:

  • The employee survey. This 61-statement survey asks all employees about work situations and creates a detailed report which highlight the psychosocial factors, hazards and indicators of inclusion, stress and trauma. There are many tools and resources to help take action on the results.

  • The organizational review. This survey asks the same questions as the employee survey but is directed to the senior leadership and decision-making team. It is recommended to complete this step before the employee survey to have the results available in the report for comparison.

  • The stress satisfaction scan. This 6-question scan is ideal for teams who lack the resources to do the full employee survey. It will provide insight into levels of stress and satisfaction at work. For more information, visit Understanding Stress satisfaction scan.
