Bullying and Harassment at Work is a Health and Safety hazard. It involves abuse of power, is protracted over time (this is the case particularly for bullying) and involves actions and behaviours that can cause the victim harm. Consequences of bullying and harassment are serious both for the victims (traumatic stress leading to serious health issues) and the employer who tolerates this type of behaviour (legal & reputation issues, high staff turnover, demotivated workforce, low productivity etc.) This 1-day training programme will cover all aspects of bullying and harassment in the workplace from the point of view of the employer and employees. This course can be delivered onsite and be specific to organisation’s internal policies and procedures.
Who is the course intended for?
This course is intended for all staff who want to learn how to recognise inappropriate behaviours at work and to understand responsibilities of both employers and employees in regard to bullying and harassment at work.
A participative and interactive training approach will be followed throughout the programme. In tandem with a number of exercises (both individual and group), participants will be encouraged to discuss topics and share their own experiences.
The programme will be evaluated informally during the programme and by a formal questionnaire at its conclusion.
On successful completion participants will be awarded with Amber Safety Certificate of Completion.
