Why do I need workplace civility training?
While OSHA doesn’t have a specific standards for workplace civility, harassment, or discrimination. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”
This means employers have a legal and ethical obligation to promote a work environment that is free from discrimination and aggressive behaviors in any form. You and your coworkers have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety, equality, and well-being of all.
