AHS’ Respectful Workplaces and Prevention of Harassment and Violence policy and its associated procedures guide us in how to prevent, identify, report and mitigate all types of workplace harassment and violence — external party, worker-to-worker, patient-to-worker, and domestic / personal violence in the workplace.
All AHS workers including employees, medical and midwifery staff, students and volunteers need education and training on patient-to-worker harassment and violence. For more information, access Training and Reporting.
The Workplace Violence and Prevention and Respectful Workplaces Insite pages offer more information about how to prevent workplace harassment and violence.
AHS supports workers to actively address and attempt to resolve conflicts that may affect them in the workplace – and take action to protect themselves.
Responding to harassment and violence includes:
Workers are expected to report all incidents of workplace harassment and violence through MySafetyNet on Insite.
Workers may refuse to perform dangerous work using the Dangerous Work Refusal Process found on Insite. Search keyword Dangerous Work Refusal Process to access this page on Insite.
AHS workers can search Harassment and Violence on Insite for more information on patient-to-worker harassment and violence.
For questions on training or to provide feedback, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Training and reporting are critical to support all AHS workers to prevent and safely respond to patient-to-worker harassment and violence.
