Preventing Harassment and Violence in the Canadian Workplace (W011)


Type: Online
Duration: 00:30 hours
Status: Active

In recent years, certain high-profile incidents have heightened employee and employer concerns about safety in the workplace. While the incidents you hear about are often extreme, harassment and violence could happen at work any time. The way an organization deals with even the most seemingly trivial incident can make the difference between another day at the office and front-page news.

This course explores the forms harassment can take in the workplace and examines the factors that might contribute to a violent incident at work. The key to preventing harassment and violence in the workplace is for all employees to be aware of the warning signs and to become familiar with their organization's policies and procedures for addressing these issues.

This course is designed for use in all provinces as a component of an organization's anti-harassment and anti-violence training program, such as is required under Ontario's Bill 168 and Bill 132. Each organization that uses this training is responsible for determining whether it should be supplemented with additional training in order to meet applicable provincial standards on workplace violence and harassment prevention.
