Dr. Loughlin was kind enoungh to answer a few of the remaining questions from our audience which came in after the time limit:
Individual Safety and Health Outcomes in the Construction Industry - Research
This is a tough one, because personalities are inevitably involved. Nonetheless, I would try to get the ‘nay sayers’ on board, by having them propose solutions re: workload. If that doesn’t work, you may have to just accept a certain amount of negativity or else ‘move the person along’.
Actually, I would not approach anyone until you’ve done your own homework! What are your rights/responsibilities in your jurisdiction (see Table at the end of the slides)? Make sure you fully grasp the ‘lay of the land’ in your jurisdiction before doing anything. It is often the victim who is forced to leave, so do not do anything until you have a plan. If you could read the book I cited ‘Toxic Workplaces’ it would also be good prep. work before doing anything (as you may have to move quickly once you report).
There typically has to be a ‘pain point’ for them (i.e., what’s in it for them to change?) – In this regard, the productivity case can sometimes get their attention (i.e., what are they losing by doing nothing?).
Again re: bullying and insurance, you need to see the guidelines in place for your jurisdiction (see Table at end of slides).
