Oilfield Supervisor Training Series: Supervisor’s Guide to Workplace Harassment
Successful leaders know that crewmembers who fundamentally value one another as individuals are motivated to give their best effort and work together as a team. To achieve that level of success, supervisors first need to be able to recognize and respond to harassment (verbal, visual or physical) by anyone in the workplace, including contractors, customers and vendors.
This program shows how tolerating inappropriate behavior is a slippery slope to unwelcome conduct that is “severe or pervasive” enough to create a “hostile work environment.” By making decisions in interactive scenarios, supervisors see that creating a culture based on respect can help prevent accidents and injuries, increase retention rates and avoid potential legal action.
