Workshop B: Designing effective safety programs to minimise bullying and harassment

Friday 26 July 2024, Sydney

Post-Conference Workshop B (13.00 – 16.00)

Designing effective safety programs to minimise bullying and harassment

Bullying and harassment is a mounting WHS problem in workplaces across Australia. Many organisations are not aware of the severity of their culture of bullying until it is too late. As poor behaviour and targeted harassment is increasingly codified into state and federal WHS law, it is crucial that all Australian workplaces ensure that their organisational culture is healthy, fair, and safe.

This workshop provides key insights and practical tools which are essential for the prevention of bullying and harassment in your organisation. Led by a workplace culture expert with decades of experience in addressing visible and hidden culture risks, you will leave this workshop with high-level strategies for protecting and enriching your teams, including:

  • Assessing the state of your organisational culture including unrealised risk
  • Improving your organisational communications to foster professional relationships
  • Exceeding compliance standards in building psychological safety
  • Resolving workplace conflicts equitably and safely
  • Measuring real change in your organisational culture
  • Networking with leading professionals in the Australian safety and wellbeing community
