Workshops offer anti-bullying training for construction industry

The Northern Regional Construction Association will be offering a series of workshops throughout the region to help construction firms crackdown on worksite bullying and harassment, following an announcement on Tuesday.

The workshops for site supervisors, foremen and union business managers, complement similar workshops for corporate leaders, executives and human resources professionals. The first of the workshops is planned to take place in Prince George on Oct. 7, with workshops scheduled for later in October in Williams Lake and Fort St. John.

"A culture shift on construction worksites will help us attract and retain the tradespeople we need, particularly women," NRCA CEO Scott Bone said in a press release. "In the north, we've alrady had more than 30 employers sign the Builders Code Acceptable Worksite Pledge. Employers are recognizing the value of eliminating harassment, hazing or bullying and that these Builders Code tools are indispensable to achieve that."

In addition to the workshops, the association announced the hiring of employer advisor Diane Bourret - a human resources professional with 20 years experience - who will work with employers and unions to retain their skilled workers through a range of free advisory services.
