How does it happen? Workplace bullying related injury explained.

Workplace bullying remains a challenging and confusing area for most people in our workplace, if not the entire community. People know about bullying type behaviours, but often they don’t know what bullying actual is. When workplace training takes place on bullying, people are often trained on systems, processes and law. Often it is devoid of understanding how people are injured by workplace bullying.

This presentation aims to address that imbalance; helping professionals to understand why people get injured and what stops them from being injured gives them strategies to take back to their workplace to prevent injury from occurring.

The key learning outcomes for audience members:

  • Understanding how employees are injured by workplace bullying
  • Understanding factors that lead to workplace bullying injury so they can prevent the injury in the first instance
  • Broad strategies to take back to their workplaces to keep employees safe or minimise harm from bullying related injury
