Preventing Violence among Employees of the same Work Organization


A study funded by the IRSST has demonstrated that violence in a workplace could be prevented, while having a positive impact on the workers’ health, by implementing a labour/management participatory prevention process. Resulting from the knowledge from this study is a new Web site, developed by the IRSST and the RIPOST research team helps companies implement such a process in their work environment. This site proposes a five-step process (employers-employees). Besides providing awareness-raising arguments regarding violence, the site offers several concrete examples and turnkey tools that are easily downloadable and applicable in companies.
