2 Workplace Violence & Harassment Prevention "The government has acted to protect workers from workplace violence. Everyone should be able to work without fear of violence in a safe and healthy workplace." Peter Fonseca, Minister of Labour "By protecting our health care workers from violence and harassment, we're helping them focus on what is most important - providing patients with high quality health care." Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long Term Care
3 Overview Baycrest is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace free from actual, attempted or threatened violence and will take reasonable precautions to prevent workplace violence. As with any safety issue, the policy and procedures apply to all Baycrest employees regardless of position, classification or union membership.

If you have any questions regarding violence and harassment in the workplace, or need to report an incident, speak to your supervisor, the Occupational Health and Safety Department at ext or the Human Resources Department at ext Please note, in this policy, Students are considered as Employees
4 Why is this important? On June 15, 2010, Bill 168, an amendment to the Occupational Health and Safety Act became law. This amendment provides protection for workers from violence and harassment in the workplace. This legislation requires that all employers and students have Workplace Violence and Harassment Policies in place and have developed a program to educate staff. All employees and students have the right to be treated with dignity in the workplace. Baycrest has zero tolerance for violence in the workplace and is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace free from actual, attempted or threatened violence and harassment. Workplace violence and harassment is a health and safety issue and all reasonable precautions will be taken to protect employees and students.
5 Why is this important? Cont. According to the 2004 General Social Survey, 17% of all self-reported incidents of violent victimization, including sexual assault, robbery and physical assault happened at the workplace. This represents over 356,000 violent workplace incidents in Canada (StatCan, 2007). In 2007, there were 2,150 allowed lost-time claims from assaults, violent acts, harassment and acts of war or terrorism in Ontario (WSIB, 2007). From April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009, Ontario Ministry of Labour Inspectors made 417 field visits and issued 351 orders related to violence in the workplace. (MOL, 2009).
6 Why is this important? Cont. Employees and students who are bullied waste 10-52% of their time at work. Research shows they spend time defending themselves and networking for support, thinking about the situation, being de-motivated and stressed not to mention taking sick leave due to stress-related illnesses. (CSC) There is evidence that violence has increased in Canadian workplaces over the past 5 years: 66% of organizations report an increase in aggressive acts within their workplaces. And, 82% of organizations report an increase in both formal incident reports and grievances (CIWV, 2000). *Source: IAPA 2009

If your supervisor is not available then report to the following Baycrest personnel: Any Baycrest supervisor or manager Security Occupational Health and Safety or Human Resources The resource person on call (directly or through locating Ext and ask them to be paged) during evening and night shifts
21 Reporting harassment & violence Complete a report using the Safety Event Report System (SERS). Your supervisor and Occupational Health will then be able to review the report.

Health care employees/student cannot refuse to work if: That particular work is considered an integral or normal part of their job; Refusal to work will endanger the life, health or safety of another person.
