Harmonious workplaces – Preventing and managing unhealthy workplace behaviour

WorkSafe WA holds many information sessions throughout the year in the metropolitan area. These sessions provide a brief overview and cover a large variety of safety issues relevant to the workplace.

The next session will take place on Tuesday 21st of February 2017 and will be targeted at employers focusing on creating harmonious workplaces by preventing and managing unhealthy workplace behaviour.

Information provided below from WorkSafe WA:

Are there signs of unhealthy workplace behaviour in your workplace, where staff are not getting on or they feel they have been treated unfairly? While each of us are human and act respectfully most of the time, there are occasions when behaviours can get out of hand and the mental health of those involved can be affected.

The importance of sound leadership, effective communication and healthy workplace cultures for harmonious workplaces will be emphasised during this session.  In addition this session will provide information for employers on:

  • what negative workplace behaviours are (such as bullying behaviours and conflict);
  • risk factors associated with negative workplace behaviours;
  • risk management approach;
  • examples of risk assessment tools; and
  • responding and managing negative behaviours in the workplace.
