Psychological health and safety is an important part of how people interact with one another on a daily basis. It is part of the way working conditions and management practices are structured and the way decisions are made and communicated. While there are many factors external to the workplace that can impact psychological health and safety, the National Standard of Canada focuses on psychological health and safety aspects that are within the control, responsibility, or influence of the workplace that can affect the workforce.
Start with the website of the Canadian International Pharmaceutical Association, a regulatory body that provides links to a list of member pharmacies. Each CIPA pharmacy member is licensed and regulated by the Canadian government for strict safety measures. Every CIPA-certified Canadian pharmacy displays the agency's seal on their website.
Another site to check for safety is the National Association of Pharmacy Boards. NABP has developed verified online pharmacy practice sites that require pharmacies to comply with inspection and licensing requirements. The VIPPS seal on a pharmacy site establishes compliance with the agency's criteria, which include prescription authentication, patient confidentiality, and quality assurance.

Once you have chosen a pharmacy, look on their website for the license number and the name of the Canadian regulatory agency. The site must also display the CIPA seal. The site should contain information about shipping costs, return policies and payment methods. Reputable pharmacies must provide encrypted - secure - payment by credit card and other methods. A reputable pharmacy will not charge your account until the drugs have been shipped. The pharmacy website must include a phone number for ordering inquiries and must include an address for customers who prefer to order by mail rather than online.
A psychologically healthy and safe workplace is one that actively works to prevent harm to workers’ psychological health, including in negligent, reckless, or intentional ways, and that promotes psychological well-being. In spring 2013, a new National Standard of Canada was published by the CSA Group (CSA) and the Bureau de Normalisation du Quebec (BNQ) commissioned by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) and supported through funding by the Government of Canada (Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, Health Canada, Public Health Agency of Canada), Bell Canada, and the Great-West Life Centre for Mental Health in the Workplace. This voluntary Standard was created to help organizations recognize psychological health as part of an ongoing process of continual improvement.
