ArcelorMittal Dofasco remains committed to protecting its employees, and others who work on our property from workplace violence and harassment.
Violent or unwelcome behaviour in the workplace is unacceptable from anyone. This policy applies to all employees, third parties, visitors, and volunteers, while working or conducting business at ArcelorMittal Dofasco. Everyone is expected to uphold this policy and work together in achieving a workplace free from violence and harassment.
Workplace harassment means engaging in a course of conduct against a worker in a workplace that is known or should be known to be unwelcome.
Workplace violence means: (a) the exercise of physical force by a person against a worker, in a workplace, that causes or could cause physical injury to the worker; (b) an attempt to exercise physical force against a worker, in a workplace, that could cause physical injury to the worker; and, (c) a statement or behaviour that a worker could reasonably interpret as a threat of physical force in the workplace, that could cause injury to that worker.
Our commitment to the ongoing improvement of our working environment is further demonstrated with the implementation of a workplace violence and harassment prevention program. In accordance with this policy, “The Workplace Violence and Harassment Prevention Program (Human Resources Policy 100) outlines the protective measures and controls that are in place to protect employees from workplace violence and harassment. The program outlines the means to summon assistance, the process to report incidents or threats of workplace violence and harassment, and the investigation of such reports. In addition, the program outlines consequences for individuals engaging in violent or unwelcome behaviour in the workplace.
Everyone is encouraged to raise concerns and report any incidents or threats of violence or harassment in the workplace to Supervision, Human Resources or Security. The success of this policy requires the involvement and commitment of everyone working for us and with us.
