Violence and harassment at work remains a major social problem in Canada.
We are excited to share that HSAA members can now participate in a new national survey on workplace violence and harassment, which will help advance work on tackling sexual harassment and building safer workplaces. This is the first ever survey on violence and sexual harassment in the workplace with a national reach in Canada.
The survey is being conducted by the Canadian Labour Congress in partnership with research experts at Western University.
We need all workers to fill it out — workers of every gender, whether or not you have experienced or witnessed workplace violence or harassment. This will help paint a clearer picture of workers’ experiences in workplace violence and sexual harassment.
“This survey will help us understand workers’ experiences of violence and harassment in Canada. Until we have that understanding, we have little chance of preventing harassment before it starts. All workers deserve to feel safe in their workplace.” – Hassan Yussuff, President of the Canadian Labour Congress.
The survey is open to workers 18 years of age or older, and takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary, confidential and anonymous.
Take the survey online here.
The survey is for everyone, regardless of their gender, occupation, position or experience of workplace harassment and violence. We hope HSAA members participate in this important survey and share it with your fellow members, co-workers from other unions, friends, family, etc.
