Course Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has driven change and fueled stress in almost every corner of society. More than ever, employers need to be vigilant against violence in the workplace, while ensuring they provide a work site that’s safe for everyone. This begins with an assessment of the risk of violence, before determining the control measures that are in place to protect the health and safety of workers.

What Will I Learn?
