WorkSafe getting into bullying

johnboy 21 September 2012 2

WorkSafe has taken the unusual step of announcing they’re investigating bullying at an un named community organisation:

“A WorkSafe ACT inspector has issued an Improvement Notice directing the Board to commence an investigation into serious allegations by several of the organisation’s workers,” Commissioner McCabe said today.

“This is a reminder to board members and senior executives in all organisations, be they public or private sector, of their obligation to take all reasonable steps to ensure the health and safety of their workers.

“The ACT’s Code of Practice for Preventing and Responding to Bullying indicates that where there are serious allegations, or allegations involving multiple workers or covering a long period of time, an investigation should be the first step taken.

The sad part is that they could be talking about any number of community organisations.

I have found that bullying is quite easy to combat, however the methods are rarely safe or legal.
