Workers Health & Safety Centre

Is your workplace violence and harassment policy current?

Worker experiencing workplace violence and harassment
Did you know employers are required to develop and implement workplace violence and harassment policies and programs that are reviewed annually?

A policy is required regardless of workplace size and must be clearly posted in a workplace with six or more employees. Further to this, employers have an obligation to provide all workers with information about the policies and any training on programs implemented. Workplace violence includes acts that would constitute offences under Canada’s Criminal Code. Workplace harassment includes types of harassment prohibited under Ontario’s Human Rights Code. 

Is your workplace compliant? Many are not. 

To help workplaces comply with Occupational Health and Safety Act outlined in Bill 168, Workers Health and Safety Centre (WHSC) offers a Workplace Violence and Harassment Program. The three-hour virtual training program covers essentials for those creating a new workplace-specific program and policies or evaluating an existing workplace violence program.
