Workplace Violence and Harassment Awareness and Prevention Training helps you to identify and effectively deal with violence and/or harassment in the workplace. Many employers are just now realizing the significant impact undesirable behavior such as violence and harassment can have in the workplace. Statistics compiled by both Statistics Canada and the US Bureau of Labour clearly outline the serious risk of, and potential for, workplace violence. According to a report by Statistics Canada in 2007, 1 in 5 or 20% of all violent incidents in Canada (physical assault, homicide, and sexual assault) took place at a work site. By taking METI’s Workplace Violence and Harassment Awareness and Prevention Training, you will identify harassing behaviors and effectively deal with the potential for violence in the workplace. Harassment at the workplace can take the form of sexual harassment, racial harassment, Personal harassment, bullying, harassment on grounds of sexual orientation, harassment of disabled people, age harassment, or stalking. Our Workplace Violence & Harassment Awareness & Prevention Training covers all forms of such abusive behaviour. Workplace violence can come from an employee involved with a criminal outsider (e.g. robbery), an employee involved with a client (e.g. customer, student, patient), an employee involved with a co-worker, or an employee involved with a spouse or other significant relationship. Be prepared to deal with such behaviours.
