Stopping BPM/Workflows triggering on $bean->save()

Hi all.

I'm doing a semi-custom import using CSV data with some conditionally formatting and record creation. I don't want any workflows firing when these records are saved using $bean->save(). I do want logic hooks to still fire but not BPM/Workflows. I believe there are conditions for the save(); but if anyone can point me in the right direction that'd be perfect.
