Train your employees right with Niagara Street Consulting’s Bill 168 expertise.
On April 20, 2009, the Ontario Government introduced Bill 168, the Occupational Health and Safety Amendment Act (Violence and Harassment in the Workplace) 2009 which amends the Occupational Health and Safety Act (“OHSA”) to impose new obligations on employers with respect to workplace violence and harassment.
This amendment to the OHSA takes violence in the workplace very seriously. That includes not just actual physical violence but threats of violence and other types of harassment, which includes behaviour like bullying, offensive or intimidating jokes, sexual harassment or any other behaviour that makes an employee uncomfortable at work and feel as if he or she is unsafe while on the job. In order to eliminate this type of it’s now required to ensure that all employees and management receive Anti-Workplace Violence/Anti-Harassmenttraining in Ontario..
However, it can be a challenge for some companies to draft policies and implement programs that comply with Bill 168, or ensure that their training program complies with the standards set by OSHA. Thankfully, businesses can turn to outside help when it comes to Bill 168 training in Ontario, and Niagara Street Consulting is an ideal choice for any organization that needs to ensure their own OSHA standards and practices are sufficient to not only protect their employees but also to keep themselves out of legal liability.
