Basic Principles

CultureSafe NZ is unique in it’s ability to address workplace bullying due to its thorough appreciation of these basic principles that:

  • Employers have an obligation to provide a safe working environment as required by the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015
  • Workplace bullying is characterised as a serious hazard under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015
  • In order to determine that the bullying threshold has been reached, the accumulative impact of repeated bullying behaviours over a period of time must be considered
  • All evidence relating to the bullying experienced by a victim must be reviewed
  • Semantic legal arguments should not be accepted in defence of an Employer who has not complied with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and these employers should be held to account
  • It is immoral to avoid Health and Safety obligations and illegitimate to evade them
