Workplace Violence and Harassment Prevention Policy
The Old Church is committed to providing a safe, healthy and
supportive work environment by treating our employees and clients with respect, fairness and sensitivity.
Violence and harassment in the workplace can have devastating effects on employees’ quality of life and organizational productivity. Workplace violence is:
the exercise of physical force by a person against a worker, in a workplace, that causes or could cause physical injury to the worker;
an attempt to exercise physical force against a worker, in a workplace, that could cause physical injury to the worker; or, a statement or behaviour that it is reasonable for a worker to interpret as a threat
to exercise physical force against a worker, in a workplace, that could cause physical injury to the worker.
Workplace harassment means engaging in a course of vexatious comment or conduct against a worker in a workplace that is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome.
Purpose of the Policy
The Old Church Theatre is committed to preventing workplace violence
and harassment. This policy defines behaviour that constitutes workplace violence and harassment, and explains procedures for reporting and resolving such incidents. The Old Church Theatre is committed to providing a working environment free of violence and harassment by familiarizing all workplace parties with the related
terminology as well as their individual responsibilities for prevention and corrective action. To establish this policy, the Old Church Theatre has consulted the joint health and safety committee (JHSC) and the following legislation governing workplace violence and harassment in Ontario:
The Occupational Health and Safety Act
The Criminal Code of Canada
The Ontario Human Rights Code
The Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997
The Compensation for Victims of Crime Act
The Regulated Health Professions Act
The management of the Old Church Theatre recognizes the potential for violence and harassment in the workplace. We will therefore make every reasonable effort to identify all potential sources of such risk to eliminate or minimize them through our workplace violence and harassment prevention program. The Old Church Theatre
will not tolerate any type of violence or harassment within the workplace or during work and event related activities.
Health and safety policy
The Old Church Theatre is vitally interested in the health and safety of its workers. Protection of workers from injury or occupational disease is a major continuing objective.
The Old Church Theatre will make every effort to provide a safe, healthy work environment. All employers, supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the continuing objective of reducing risk of injury.
The Old Church Theatre, as employer, is ultimately responsible for worker health and safety. As president I give you my personal commitment that I will comply with my duties under the Act, such as taking every reasonable precaution for the protection of workers in the workplace.
Supervisors will be held accountable for the health and safety of workers under their supervision. Supervisors are subject to various duties in the workplace, including the duty to ensure that machinery and equipment are safe and that workers work in compliance with established safe work practices and procedures.
Every worker must protect his or her own health and safety by working in compliance with the law and with safe work practices and procedures established by the employer. Workers will receive information, training and competent supervision in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.
It is in the best interest of all parties to consider health and safety in every activity. Commitment to health and safety must form an integral part of this organization, from the president to the workers.
