One definition of workplace bullying is: “the repeated less favourable treatment of a person by another or others in the workplace, which may be considered unreasonable and inappropriate workplace practice. It includes behaviour that intimidates, offends, degrades or humiliates a worker.”

Repeated refers to the persistent or ongoing nature of the behaviour and can refer to a range of different types of behaviour over time. Systematic refers to having, showing or involving a method or plan.

Whether behaviour is systematic or not will depend on an analysis of the circumstances of each individual case with this general guideline in mind. Risk to health and safety includes the risk to the emotional, mental physical health of the person(s)in the workplace.

Bullying is not acceptable workplace behaviour and it should not be tolerated in any form. Workplace bullying prevention awareness training has been developed to help supervisors identify and deal with bullying in the workplace. It aims to provide practical advice and information on making workplaces safer for everyone concerned.
