Confronting Workplace Violence, Harassment and Mental Health

An employee survey has tackled the critical topics of workplace violence, harassment and mental health. On this episode of the OH&S SafetyPod, we'll talk with a key employee from the company behind the study to discuss what it says about the current status of these concerns in work environments.

Workplace violence, harassment and mental health have become increasingly prominent areas of concern in recent years. Yet, given the sensitive nature of these topics, it is often difficult to determine what the reality is for today’s workers. To that end, Traliant — which focuses on online compliance training — recently conducted a survey of more than 1,000 employees to reveal their experiences and how these first-hand accounts reflect the state of the workplace.

Elissa Rossi, VP of compliance advisory services at Traliant, joins the OH&S SafetyPod to discuss the results of "Fear Factors: A 2024 Employee Survey Report on Workplace Violence, Harassment and Mental Health." We’ll address some of the study's most significant findings, the impact of hybrid work models and what employers can do to combat workplace violence, harassment and mental health in their organizations.
