Violence in the Workplace for Managers

As of January 1, 2021, legislation will come into force to ensure employers prevent harassment and violence in federally regulated industries and workplaces (click here to learn more). This Workplace Violence Harassment training program has been developed to exceed these new federal requirements and is applicable to workplaces across Canada. Training for workers is also available here.

Today’s work environments can vary greatly in size and location; from a few people to hundreds, from an office to a construction site. However, no workplace is immune to the possibility of violence and harassment.

Throughout this course, students will participate in training to better recognize, respond to, and protect themselves and their workers against all types of workplace violence and harassment including:

  • Harassment based on protected grounds
