Virtual Instructor-Led Training (via Zoom)


The Violence and Harassment Prevention Regulation will come into effect on September 4, 2021.


The Government of Yukon has approved a new regulation aimed at preventing violence and harassment, two serious workplace hazards. The regulation will help to foster a positive culture in the workplace as well as physical and psychological safety for Yukon workers. Enhancements to the existing regulations about hazard assessment have also been approved, making them clearer and easier to understand.


Harassment and violence in the workplace have far-reaching effects on the health and well-being of workers as well as on their job stability and job satisfaction. Harassment and violence may also have an impact on the overall economy resulting from costs associated with absenteeism, lost productivity and job turnover.
