Prevention of Workplace 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.
