Study that aims to establish the prevalence of negative acts in the workplace in a nationally representative sample of Irish employees. This project involved a survey of a national probability sample of employees focusing on workplace ill treatment received at least once over the previous two years.
As part of the Irish Workplace behaviour study (IWBS) IOSH has developed guidance, case studies and a checklist tool to help organisations address ill treatment in the workplace.
- Workplace Ill-Treatment Checklist Tool - A simple tool that organisations can adapt to explore the extent of ill-treatment in their organisation and to indicate the areas that need to be addressed by a suitable plan.
- Workplace Ill-Treatment & Productivity Guidance - A guide aimed at informing members and helping them to determine ‘next steps’.
- Workplace Ill Treatment Management Leaflet - A leaflet designed to be read by non-OSH practitioners to assist their understanding of the problem and what needs to be done to control it. The OSH Practitioner can use this to brief his management team.
