Responsibility for bullying in the workplace is shared between workers, the employer, and the union. This course will explore different approaches and tools to address bullying in the workplace, from education programs, legislation, workplace policies and procedure, grievances, and other means within the collective agreement language like labour management committees. The course will also explore the relationship and differences between legislation covering bullying and harassment. We will also look at what the rest of Canada is doing on the topic of bullying and pull examples and lessons from their experiences. Finally, we will review the new B.C. Legislation put out by WorkSafe BC and the implications of this language for OH&S committees and WorkSafe BC claims. Prerequisite: Applicants must be a steward or member of their Joint Occupational Health and Safety (JOSH) Committee, Bargaining Committee, or Union-Management Committee.

The Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training course was developed by the Mental Health Commission of Canada to help people provide initial support to someone who may be developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. MHFA teaches mental health first aid skills. The course does not train people to be therapists, counsellors, or mental health professionals. The philosophy behind MHFA is that a mental health crisis, such as suicidal and self-harming actions, may be avoided through early intervention. If a crisis does arise, an MHFA trained person in the workplace can take action that may reduce the harm that could result. Just as physical first aid is administered to an injured person before medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate treatment is found or until the crisis is resolved. This course is ideal for union stewards or representatives, joint health and safety committee members, business representatives, local staff, first aid attendants, or anyone that wishes to increase their skills to support their fellow members.

This course is designed to equip participants with tools and strategies for successful work reintegration outcomes. Participants will explore leading research and learn the principles of good work reintegration practices and the duty to accommodate. The course has a strong focus on the analysis and interpretation of human rights obligations and particularly the duty to accommodate. Barriers to successful work reintegration are addressed with a focus on attitudinal barriers and their elimination using the social model of disability and therapeutic return to work principles. An in-depth comparison between older methods of disability management and the newer, progressive disability prevention model is presented and participants learn about the paradigm shift from management to prevention.
