Respect In the Workplace
Course Fee (non-member): $250.00
INSTRUCTOR, PAUL KELLS
People are at risk for physical injury in a workplace when others won’t speak up about the hazards and inappropriate behaviours they see. Such behaviours also create distractions, resulting in more risk. For new and young workers, not only is the work unfamiliar but they are less likely to voice concerns. People on lower rungs of the ladder feel vulnerable and hesitant to cross “power” lines. Managers, supervisors and peers need to understand these perceptions to reduce the risks they create. This workshop is suitable for safety professionals and joint committee members. Participants will leave with:
• Knowledge of the underlying causes and effects of power imbalances, through a pre conference 90 minute online program “Respect in the Workplace”.
• A deeper understanding of physical and mental health risks associated with distractions from inappropriate behavior
• How power imbalances impact orientations of new and young workers. Methods to improve orientations by helping supervisors recognize how to deal with perceptions of power differentials
• A tool to help assess gaps and risks in their workplace associated with bullying, harassment and discrimination
• A basic self-created action plan to address these specific gaps.
• + 90 Minute Pre Conference Online Program

*includes a three year license enabling the participant to retake the course and access all provincial, national and integration legislation related to violence and bullying.
