Understanding the Signs of Bullying and Domestic Violence in the Workplace
Domestic violence and bullying in the workplace cost businesses money every
year in lost productivity (through absenteeism, tardiness, and inability to
perform duties) and compromises the safety of the organization and its workers.
The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has released two
e-courses that focus on violence related topics, domestic violence and
bullying, to help people understand the impact these forms of violence can have
on the workplace, and how risks can be mitigated.
Domestic Violence in the Workplace: Although domestic violence may not be
recognized by some as a workplace hazard, it can interfere with the victim at
work and impact a workplace. This e-course will help participants understand
the effects of domestic violence on the organization and its workers, and how
to recognize the signs and symptoms of domestic violence. The course will also
identify the roles of the employer, supervisors and employees in supporting
victims, and preventing related workplace violence.
Bullying in the Workplace: Bullying is becoming increasingly recognized as a
serious workplace problem that can cause undue stress, anxiety, and low morale
among workers. This e-course will help participants recognize the signs of
bullying, understand the effects of bullying on the organization and its
workers, and mitigate the risks.
