  • Workplace Bullying - A Domain of FWC - Work Safety Hub
    which there is national law and we should have a national solution to complement what the safety regulators are already doing State OHS lacks the required resources in providing solutions to workplace bullying issues Shorten perceives the new Fair Work Commission role as complementing State regulators But the Minister s comments are implying that the FWC will have the lead role on legal cases The media is clamouring for detailed analysis of the Minister s rationale There have been some gaps or miscommunications between the Minister and the media reports Minister Shorten wants to emphasise that monitoring work performance does not constitute bullying at all if he meant it as disciplining the employee However the media interprets workplace bullying as creating trouble in the workplace or as misunderstandings personal clashes or being overly sensitive on the part of the bullied There is a serious misinterpretation of workplace bullying in the media and this can readily influence the State OHS as a whole OHS is seen by the public as a disruption to the business rather than being part of the whole process of mitigating workplace bullying Minister Shorten issued a media release instead to further support his stance he said The Government s response supports measures to adopt a national definition of workplace bullying to promote education and awareness of what constitutes workplace bullying and to lead the development of national training standards to improve responses to bullying complaints Sad to say the Minister s media statement was plagued with publicity The core issue of telling the people how workplace bullying will be prevented was not emphasised well by the media reports Even then The Australian Council of Trade Unions ACTU is very receptive with the Minister s decision as it places workplace bullying in a legal framework The ACTU is familiar with the issues across though the cynics may say manipulative or at least accepts the fact that bullying needs prevention ACTU indicated in its press statement But no matter what the laws employers must be accountable for providing safe workplaces in which bullying does not occur in the first place Meanwhile other media reports say that Other recommendations supported by the Government include Safe Work Australia developing materials for employers that provide advice on preventing and responding to workplace bullying Safe Work Australia will also work with the states and territories to develop nationally accredited training for managers and health and safety representatives to help them deal with bullying A lot of other debates are ongoing like whether the Australian Government will require making changes in the Fair Work Act to implement its policies It should be stipulated that any training MUST be fully supported by employers and their industry associations And the training is for dealing with bullying and not preventing it The access to affordable legal remedy for workplace bullying will be crucial taking into consideration that many of those workers who are seeking justice are already suffering from mental anguish and fragility and that legal

  • A look at effective Hazard Management for SME's - Work Safety Hub
    what seems like 24 hours a day for an eternity all to build your exciting new profitable business Then out of the blue a staff member is seriously injured A hazard is a potential source of harm and a risk is a judgment on the potential consequence of a hazard Generally when making a judgment about a hazardous situation the likelihood consequence and exposure to the hazard is considered to prevent further incidents Effective risk and hazard management has to be an active collaboration between internal and external stakeholders at each step of the process By approaching it with a focus on consultation rather than a one way flow of communication you establish a mutual understanding WorkSafe Victoria encourages medium businesses to integrate safety into their business management systems to ensure they practice prevention rather than reaction and gain commitment from owners directors to the process Often owners and directors are unaware that systematic prevention based health and safety management and promotion leads to reduced WorkCover premiums and many other cost reductions However many people feel that safety management systems are too complex for the medium segment they want the cost reductions but not the complexity that comes with it
