WORKPLACE VIOLENCE TRAINING

2.5 or 4 hour training progrms

Introduction:

Employers are legally required to develop and implement policies and procedures concerning Workplace Violence and Harassment.

Once developed and implemented, employers must support and maintain programs to support these initiatives. In addition, employers (and their representatives) must effectively deal with incidents and complaints of Workplace Violence and Harassment.

Although there are similarities in Workplace Violence and Harassment legislation across Canada, it’s important to note that the legislation differs from province to province. As such, this training program is tailored to the specific jurisdiction applicable to the client (i.e. provincial, federal, etc.).

 

Training Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the definition of Workplace Violence and Harassment.

  • Understand their specific legal responsibilities with respect to controlling and handling incidents of Workplace Violence and Harassment.

  • Have an understanding of the scope and content of effective Workplace Violence and Harassment policies and programs.

  • Understand the tools and processes that will assist in conducting a Workplace Violence and Harassment assessment of their workplace.

 

Target Audience:
  • All Staff and Associates,

  • Supervisors and Managers, 

  • Health & Safety Committee Members.

 
Course Length and Options:

This session is typically offered in a 2 ½ hour format. It can also be expanded to a half-day session (4 hours) in the event that the client requires a more detailed training program. In the 4-hour training program, additional time is spent on the process for conducting workplace violence assessments and reviewing case studies.

The 2 ½ hour session is suitable for associates requiring a basic understanding of the topic. The half-day session is designed for associates, supervisors and managers that are charged with the responsibility of implementing a Workplace Violence and Harassment Policy or will be conducting assessments.
