Creating inclusive and supportive workplaces free of bullying and harassment

Having a strong psychological safety climate helps your organisation to reduce the likelihood of bullying and fosters engagement and productivity. A range of resources exist to help organisations identify workplace hazards that impact on bullying and harassment.

If you wish to promote a bullying awareness message within your organisation to coincide with the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence on 18 March 2016, Comcare has developed a Workplace Bullying Support Pack. While the day has a focus on schools, it's a good opportunity to think about how bullying affects workplaces, too.

For organisations keen to promote an inclusive and respectful workplace, the APSC guide Respect: promoting a culture free from harassment and bullying in the APS is a good resource to review.

The Safe Work Australia Guide for preventing and responding to workplace bullying provides information for persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) on how to manage the risks of workplace bullying as part of meeting their duties under the work health and safety laws.

Comcare has training targeted at supporting organisation to identify and address inappropriate workplace conduct—Recognising and Managing Inappropriate Workplace Behaviours.
