Concern about the effects of workplace violence and harassment on the health
and safety of workers has been growing over the last decade. Both third-party
violence and harassment may have severely negative consequences for the
individuals affected and their families, co-workers and organisations, as well
as the whole society. Although this growing concern has led to better provision
of information, there is still a need to improve awareness, and to encourage
better dissemination of the proven tools and procedures to prevent and manage
these occupational risks.
A podcast, published by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety,
discusses workplace violence and harassment - how to protect your employees,
tips for prevention and the legal requirements. The podcast runs 7:13 minutes.
