How Safe Are You at Work?: Understanding Workplace Violence
Today we hear of domestic violence, crime, school shootings, protests turning violent and terrorist events spilling into our work environments. Workplace violence is not limited to your current or former employees; it may be perpetrated by customers, family members or even strangers fixated on making a statement. The primary focus of this training is to help supervisors be more aware of warning signs of potential violent situations and steps you can take to keep yourself and others out of harm's way. But if there is a situation that cannot be stopped, you also need to be aware of our emergency response procedures so that you can assist employees.
