Public comment sought - Code of practice on workplace behaviour
WA’s Commission for Occupational Safety and Health is seeking public comment on the code of practice for workplace behaviour.
At the May meeting the Commission endorsed the draft workplace behaviour code of practice and agreed to a three-month public consultation period ending 30 August 2021.
The guidance in this draft code of practice should be considered in conjunction with the general duties in the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 and the draft Violence and aggression at work code of practice.
This code focuses on the general principles applied to the prevention and management of inappropriate or unreasonable behaviour in the workplace. The intent of this code of practice is to provide practical guidance for workplaces where people may be exposed to various forms of inappropriate or unreasonable workplace behaviour including physical assault, verbal abuse, threats, intimidation and harassment.
