You can and must prevent and manage workplace bullying like other workplace hazards, by:
- identifying its presence or potential
- putting control measures in place to prevent or manage it
- putting planning, resources and systems in place: for example, policies, procedures, consultation and training.
For practical steps on how to do this, see sections 5, 6 and 7 of our guide ‘How to prevent and respond to workplace bullying’ in the resources listing below.
