Prevention of Violence
Violence should not be a part of your job, but we know that workers are suffering physical and psychological injury as a result of violent workplace incidents. This course is intended to assist joint committee members to set up an effective violence prevention program. Please ensure that you are a union appointed committee member, in the non-government sector, and that you have taken the Basic Committee Training course prior to registering for this course.

In this course, you will learn:

Legal requirements for Employers to complete a violence risk assessment and to develop a violence prevention program for their varied workplaces

  • Definition of Workplace Violence
  • Hazard identification
  • Factors that contribute to the increased risk of violence
  • Strategies for recommending corrective measures to eliminate or reduce the risk of violence
  • Strategies to address Domestic Violence on workplaces

This course is limited to 22 seats so register early to avoid disappointment.
