Trucking HR Canada is working to further support trucking and logistics employers with the new requirements and impending changes to the Canada Labour Code through the development of practical training resources for the industry.
It needs, then, to gain a better understanding of what issues employers and employees face as it relates to anti-harassment and violence prevention training in the workplace and has launched a short 15-minute survey to trucking industry employers in Canada. The survey findings will inform new resources for employers to update their workplace policies and training with the goal of reducing workplace harassment and violence in the trucking sector while complying with Bill C-65. As a multiyear initiative, this project will aim to pilot training across the country.
All responses will remain anonymous and only reported in aggregate as overall results. They will not be attributed to a specific individual.
Participants who complete the survey will receive:
• An exclusive webinar on the recent changes to the Canada Labour Code by an employment lawyer,covering your obligations as an employer around compliance, training, and policies; as well as best practices around workplace violence and anti-harassment that your company can look to.
• Early access to an anti-harassment and violence workplace policy template to help employers prepare their workplaces, employees and themselves by being proactive and customizing their own violence and harassment policy.
The first 100 respondents to complete the survey will receive a $5 Starbucks gift card as an extra thank you for completing the survey early.
Trucking HR plans to run the survey until August 23, 2019. Questions, issues or concerns can be emailed to [email protected]
The project is funded in part by the government of Canada’s Workplace Harassment and Violence Prevention Fund.
