Feb. 24, 2016, is Pink Shirt Day in Canada, a day dedicated to combatting bullying in workplaces, schools, homes and on the Internet. Under the OHS laws, employers have a duty to protect workers from workplace bullying, harassment and/or violence. So it’s important that you take appropriate measures to do so, including training and educating workers on this topic.
HOW TO USE THE TOOL
Adapt this handout for your OHS program and policies, and the requirements and definitions in your jurisdiction’s OHS laws on bullying, harassment and violence. Give it to workers as part of a safety talk to educate them on these hazards.
