SafetyVantage is pleased to announce the release of their Workplace Violence and Harassment Awareness online training course.

According to Statistics Canada, there are approximately 350,000 cases of workplace violence every year. You may think that you are excluded from that statistic, however if you’ve been threatened, pushed, had something thrown at you, or been ridiculed or humiliated at work, then you’ve experienced workplace violence.

Recognizing violence is the first step toward preventing it. Workplace violence is the threatened, attempted, or actual conduct of a person that causes or is likely to cause an incident, including any threatening statement or behaviour that gives an employee reasonable cause to believe that they’re at risk of an incident. Any forms of:

  • Bullying
  • Harassment

The course covers the topics of avoidance, de-escalation, and protection when the employees encounter workplace violence.

The course is delivered online and includes interactive exercises and quizzes. Once a learner successfully completes the course a training certificate is issued online.
