Purpose

Fire + Rescue NSW (FRNSW) is committed to providing a healthy and safe working environment that is free from bullying and harassment. Bullying has detrimental effects on those who experience and witness it, on workplace morale and the provision of service to our community. Workplace bullying and harassment will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

This policy formally adopts the Public Service Commission’s Positive and Productive Workplaces Guideline: a guide for the NSW government sector to prevent and manage unreasonable behaviour and bullying.

These guidelines will assist to shape FRNSW’s approach to the prevention and management of workplace bullying.

Scope and application

This policy applies to all FRNSW employees, contractors and consultants engaged on behalf of FRNSW.

Workplace bullying and/or harassment will not be tolerated under any circumstances and any employee found to have bullied others may have their employment terminated.
