Workplace Training

We provide an extensive range of training and consulting to build workplace health, safety, and wellbeing. Together, we can create a robust, more productive workforce.

Appropriate Workplace Behaviour Training for Staff and Managers

There are two reasons why your staff may need workplace training on appropriate behaviours – culture and compliance.

Workplace training can support an inclusive, productive and harmonious culture. It encourages fair and respectful treatment of others consistent with your organisation’s values. In turn, this supports staff retention.

Workplace training is also critical for supporting legal compliance by your organisation and managers with a raft of legislative requirements, for example, laws relating to workplace discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying. Training minimises the legal, reputational and financial risks caused by employment complaints and claims, as well as minimising risks to health and safety.  

At WilliamsonBarwick, we have devised a workplace training course called “Appropriate Workplace Behaviour”. The course is run by our experienced employment lawyers, and can be delivered by remote technology or in person, depending on your location. We can also tailor the course to your policies and procedures including your code of conduct.

What Does The Appropriate Workplace Behaviour Course Include?

This workplace training is designed to promote appropriate workplace behaviour and to provide both employees and managers with the skills and knowledge they need to effectively handle difficult situations. 

The course covers topics such as sexual harassment, bullying and discrimination. In addition, the course for managers equips them to correctly handle inappropriate behaviour and to deal with workplace grievances.

The Appropriate Workplace Behaviour Course Content

Bullying and Harassment

This part of the course covers a wide range of topics, from identifying bullying behaviour to how to respond if you witness someone being bullied.

The goal is to help employees feel comfortable and confident in their workplace, and to provide them with the tools they need to prevent and address bullying behaviour.

Sexual Harassment

This part of the course includes identifying what constitutes sexual harassment, the legal definition of sexual harassment, and the steps employees can take to report and prevent harassment. 

We stress the importance of reporting any incidents of sexual harassment, and we offer resources to employees who require assistance or support.


The discrimination chapter of the course is designed to help employees understand the different forms that discrimination can take and how to identify it. 

We also provide information on the various laws that protect employees from discrimination. In addition, we offer guidance on how to prevent discrimination in the workplace and what to do if you witness or experience it.

Health and Safety

The objective in this chapter of the course is to ensure that staff understand their work health and safety obligations, and the impact of workplace incidents.

We also provide guidance on how to implement effective health and safety policies and procedures. With our help, you can provide a safe and healthy workplace for your employees and maintain compliance with all relevant laws.
