If you work in health care, chances are you’ve experienced or witnessed bullying and harassment in the workplace. You probably know first-hand how bullying can negatively impact the person targeted. But bullying doesn’t just hurt the person it’s directed at. Bullying affects us all. The month of February is national anti-bullying month. Join SafeCare BC and hundreds of continuing care staff across the province as we unite to #EndBullying in the workplace.

Why focus on bullying?

Bullying and harassment doesn’t just affect the person targeted – it affects us all. Bullying…

  • Damages trust between colleagues
  • Impairs communication
  • Lowers self-esteem of those targeted and those who witness it
  • Decreases the quality of care for residents
  • Decreases the safety of care and the safety of the workplace

Worksafe BC legally requires all employers to develop and implement a written policy statement clearly declaring that workplace bullying and harassment is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Do you have a statement?
