Harassment and violence are serious issues facing Canadian workplaces, and their impacts can be far-reaching. That’s why your employees need to know how to recognize workplace harassment and violence, as well as how to respond to and report them if they see them.

Workplace Harassment and Violence: Canadian Edition begins by exploring harassment – how it can happen, who can be a harasser and when and where harassment can happen. Learners are provided with practical and important information about bystander intervention and reporting. The course also delves into the area of workplace violence, with content devoted to understanding what it is, what the warning signs are, and how to respond if it happens.

Manager-only modules are also available to guide managers through handling and escalating reports and how to manage after a report has been made – including if a report is made against a manager personally.
