WorkSafeBC releases tool kit to help employers meet Nov. 1 anti-bullying requirements

WorkSafeBC has released a tool kit to help employers meet three new occupational health and safety policies coming into effect on Nov. 1.
The new policies were approved in March and have been developed to clarify the obligations of employers, supervisors, and workers in preventing workplace bullying and harassment.

Some of the requirements include developing workplace safety policy statements and creating procedures for responding to bullying complaints. Employees are also expected to be trained to recognize, respond to and deal with bullying and harassment incidents in the workplace.

The tool kit includes animated clips that can be used for training, a handbook on preventing and addressing workplace bullying and harassment, posters for the workplace and a small business guide.

Employers can find the new tool kit here.
