As workplace bullying, harassment and violence have become more common, the OHS laws have been adapted to cover these hazards. And even when the OHS laws don’t specifically address bullying, harassment and violence, courts may interpret the so-called “general duty clause” in the OHS statutes to require employers to protect workers from such hazards. So it’s important that you take appropriate measures to do so, including training workers and supervisors.
HOW TO USE THE TOOL
This training presentation was created by WorkSafeBC to help employers comply with new bullying and harassment policies that take effect on Nov. 1, 2013. You can use this presentation to train workers and supervisors on workplace bullying and harassment. You should insert workplace-specific information in all places indicated by bold writing. If you’re not based in BC, you should also adapt it for any workplace bullying, harassment and/or violence requirements in the OHS regulations in your jurisdiction.
Each slide in this presentation contains suggested speaking notes for the presenter in the “Notes” field.
