Preventing and managing workplace bullying, including sexual harassment, is not just a 'feel good' exercise, or something organisations should only do when they are faced with a complaint. It is part of core business. Employers and managers have a duty of care as part of occupational health and safety laws to prevent hazards that might contribute to workplace injuries. This book shows you how to meet these responsibilities using practical, sensible strategies based on a framework of:
- understanding what bullying and sexual harassment really mean,
- using a risk management approach to identify issues in the workplace,
- implementing procedures to control risk,
- taking action when things go wrong.
A range of tools and tips are included throughout the text to help the reader get started quickly.
