1. Bullying and Harassment for Employees

Safe Work Australia presents some key data on bullying and violence in Australian workplaces that demonstrates the connection between harassment, bullying and violence statistics speak for themselves:

  • One in three women who claim for a mental disorder stated it involved harassment or bullying
  • One in five men who claim for a mental disorder stated it involved harassment or bullying
  • Workers who report being sworn or yelled at in the workplace: 37%
  • Almost 20% of workers say they have experienced discomfort due to sexual humour

This ‘ethics and conduct’ compliance course has been co-created with subject matter expert Thomson Geer, designed to provide employees with an understanding about bullying and harassment in the workplace, the type of behaviour that should be avoided and what employees can do if bullying or harassment is occurring in their workplace. This course will equip the learner with what to do if they or their co-workers are receiving ill-intentioned or inappropriate attention.

2. Hand Hygiene for Healthcare Workers

Hand hygiene is a standard precaution against healthcare associated infections, used in all healthcare facilities. The likelihood of somebody becoming infected is drastically reduced when people perform hand hygiene correctly and at the right times.
The course informs all staff that work in a health care setting to provide an understanding of the role hand hygiene plays in preventing and controlling infection, how to perform hand hygiene according to the World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines, when to use alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR) or soap and water, and when hand hygiene is necessary. In the article ‘Clean Care is Safer Car’ WHO tackles FAQs around the evidence for hand hygiene guidelines, underlying health care associated infection (HAI) cases that exceed 1.4 million at any given time.
