stop-harassment-violence Workplace Violence and Harassment Prevention Training

Course Outline

Employers have obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to protect workers from all sources of violence. The goal of this Act (Bill 168) is to support the prevention of workplace violence and harassment.

According to the Ministry of Labour, one year after Ontario passed amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the province issued 1,100 orders related to the new legislation.

Since then, inspectors from the Ministry of Labour probed more than 400 complaints involving workplace violence and issued 600 orders to comply associated with the new legislation. They also investigated more than 1,000 complaints involving workplace harassment.
