Psychological Safety may seem like a progressive idea in some circles. And, indeed, bringing it to the forefront of health, safety and wellness conversations in the workplace may seem new and modern, even here in the early 2020s. However, the concept has been around for a while, originating with humanistic psychologists in the 50s and 60s, such as Carl Rogers. The concept had something of a renaissance in the 90s and has grown in importance and attention in the workplace consistently since. (Wikipedia; Edmondson & Lei, 2014).
