Guarding Minds at Work (GMW) is a free, online survey tool to help assess and address psychological health and safety in the workplace.
In 2020, we are enhancing the survey and content to align better with current legislation and business practices. Because of this, we need to collect over 3,000 responses using the updated survey to create a new benchmark.
Your responses to this survey are strictly confidential and will only be used anonymously and in aggregate to form a new benchmark for Guarding Minds at Work.
All responses will be collected and analyzed at Queen’s University and given to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) to replace the existing benchmark data.
Be among the first to see how this resource has evolved. The survey will take you approximately 15 minutes to complete. Begin the survey now.
