Bullying and Violence

'Bullying and occupational violence are issues that must be seriously addressed by businesses, the workforce and the community.  Employers need to assess the risk, ensure control measures are in place and  join with the workforce to ensure it does not become a problem.'
(From WorkSafe's first publication on Bullying and Violence at Work)

Bullying and violence are legitimate OHS issues - and workers and elected OHS reps have an important role to play in ensuring that their workplaces have adequate policies and procedures in place to prevent bullying and violence occurring as well as ensuring that any alleged instances are dealt with quickly and fairly.
