Bullying Fact Sheet 10 – Training

Employers have a duty to make sure that their employees are provided with the information, instruction, training and supervision they need to do their jobs safely and without risks to health.

The specific mix of information, instruction and training needed to reduce the risk of bullying in a particular workplace will depend on the specific needs of the employees and the workplace.

Bullying has been linked to situations of role conflict and uncertainty. Employers should make sure that employees understand their role and have the appropriate skills to do their job.

This includes making sure that employees who supervise others have appropriate skills, such as managing workplace relationships and, if necessary, giving them training to acquire these skills before starting supervisory duties.
