This course is designed to help workplace parties address workplace violence hazards and comply with the legal requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act to address violence and harassment in the workplace as outlined by Bill 168. Participants will review the definition of workplace violence and harassment and discuss risk factors associated with workplace violence. They will also evaluate tools necessary to identify and assess workplace violence hazards in order to implement effective control measures.
Participants will develop the knowledge necessary to help them fulfill OHSA’s requirements including developing and posting written policies with respect to workplace violence, conducting a risk assessment, developing a workplace violence and harassment program and training workers regarding the workplace policies and programs. They will also learn about the employer’s duty to observe for evidence of domestic violence and to provide information about “a person with a history of violent behaviour.”
