The Hawaii State Legislature adopted S.R. 100, Urging the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations to Adopt Rules to Prohibit Abusive Work Environments, on April 9, 2010. The resolution seeks to protect employees from mistreatment in the workplace and to promote safe work environments by calling on the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations to adopt rules to prohibit abusive environments.

Training and Resources to Help You Address Workplace Bullying
CPI provides training and resources to help organizations develop staff on the issue of workplace bullying and harassment. We offer the following resources and programs for addressing workplace bullying:

  • Workplace Bullying: Matters at Work—a three- to four-hour seminar offered by CPI to organizations aiming to prevent and respond to issues of workplace bullying.
  • Workplace Bullying Topic Module—a two-hour module that can be delivered by anyone in your organization who is a Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® Certified Instructor, a Dementia Capable Care Certified Instructor, or a Prepare Training® Certified Instructor.

Tailoring Training to Your Organization’s Needs
Becoming certified to teach one or more of our training programs to other staff in your organization enables you to share the techniques presented in the Workplace Bullying Topic Module with staff. If you work in an environment with a duty to care such as a school, a community home, or a hospital, Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training will equip you and your staff with practical strategies for safely managing disruptive behavior while balancing the responsibilities of care.

If you work in a business environment where there is no duty to care such as retail, a manufacturing organization, or a library or another public building, Prepare Training® will equip you and your staff with skills for effectively responding to challenging customer and coworker behavior.

If you work with individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia, Dementia Capable Care training will give you and your staff the knowledge, skills, and resources to improve function, safety, and quality of life for individuals with dementia.

All three training programs can be tailored to the unique needs of your organization. With our train-the-trainer option, select staff can be certified to teach any of our programs, as well as the Workplace Bullying Topic Module, to other staff on a continuing basis.
