Sponsored by Rio Tinto, SME is proud to present "The Mining Mental Health Study: Vale's (brave) Journey into the Unknown." Despite increased awareness of mental health issues in the workplace, very little research of this kind has been undertaken in the mining industry. This webinar describes one mining company’s seminal journey toward understanding the mental health and wellbeing of its workforce in Ontario, Canada by way of a collaborative scientific effort that included corporate leaders, researchers, and unions. Mining Mental Health represents a first study of its kind to assess the mental health of a large and representative sample (N=2,224) of mining industry workers. Participants in this webinar will learn how the project came to fruition, hear the main findings from the study, and explore how research of this kind can help companies better understand their most important resource.
