Title Harassment at work: Help from hazard evaluation
Original title Harcèlement au travail: l'appui de l'analyse des risques [in French]
Bibliographic information Sep. 2007. p.16-19. Illus. 4 ref.
Abstract Belgian legislation on violence and sexual harassment at the place of work has been amended recently, in particular for taking into account the psychosocial effects of bullying and harassment. It thus places the emphasis on primary prevention, based on hazard evaluation and the screening for undue behaviour in order to avoid the need for legal proceedings. A well-conducted hazard evaluation is therefore essential for effective prevention. Prevent has consequently designed a training programme for assisting Belgian enterprises in carrying out a psychological stress hazard evaluation.
