Bullying & Harassment Awareness

About this course

Unsafe behaviours underpin the evolution of a destructive workplace culture. This course provides learners with awareness of psychosocial hazards, and the subsequent psychological and physical impact that unsafe behaviours have on individuals, teams, and organisations. Improving awareness of unsafe behaviours is a proactive means to prevent risk arising from psychosocial hazards.

High performance workplace culture is created by design. Typically, underperforming, or destructive workplace culture is created by default. The culture of any organisation is shaped by the worst behaviours that leaders are prepared to tolerate, ignore, or accept. Therefore, key questions to consider are:

  • What behaviours are tolerated or ignored?

  • What behaviours create risk to health or safety?
  • What are our legal obligations in respect of behavioural risks at work?

  • Are we complying with our legal obligations?

  • If unacceptable behaviour occurs, when and how should team members and leaders intervene?

Methods of delivery:

This course can be delivered face-to-face, online (via Microsoft Teams) or via online self-paced learning (or any combination of these).

Self-paced learning:

As an alternative to face-to-face and online training, this program can be accessed via self-paced learning. Online self-paced learning provides learners with a choice regarding when and where they undertake training. This mode of delivery is both time and cost effective.


For organisations that have a learning management system (LMS), this course is also available in SCORM format. This enables organisations to upload our Bullying and Harassment Awareness training program into their existing LMS.

Maximum number of attendees:

The delivery and design of our face-to-face and online training sessions ensures high levels of interaction, for this reason we cap attendance at a maximum of 24 attendees at any of these sessions. The are no limitations on the number of self-paced learners.
