Why take this course?
Assessing individual and organizational workplace violence risk is now a requirement in most Canadian jurisdictions. Current legislation places a significant onus on employers to alert workers to circumstances and individuals who may pose a risk of physical violence, bullying, harassment in the workplace. In addition, employers must implement policies, procedures and practices on how they will investigate, assess and manage individual situations. These requirements only heighten the need for a robust threat management process as a way of minimizing your organizational risk exposure.

We, the general public, are only familiar with what the media reports whenever a serious incident has occurred, but it’s interesting to note that many of these potential threats are defused by advisors such as you… The threat of violence can be negated through identification, assessment and management. Of particular interest was your explanation of the types of workplace violence perpetrators and your breakdown of direct, veiled and conditional threats.
