Title The role of workplace conflict in occupational health and safety
Bibliographic information Dec. 1998, Vol.14, No.6, p.587-592. 24 ref.
Abstract It is argued that there are several key issues that impact on or are impacted by conflict, namely stress, bullying and workplace violence. As such, conflict is a workplace hazard that can dramatically affect employee safety and health. It is argued that a piecemeal approach to workplace conflict fails to account for its systemic nature, leaving conflict unresolved. Topics: bullying; discriminatory practices; human behaviour; human relations; neuropsychic stress; sickness absenteeism; violence.
