Violence At Work Online course

Any form of harassment or violence against workers can cause stress and in some cases injury and is always unacceptable. Violence and harassment at work can be committed by colleagues, managers and third parties such as clients, customers and patients. It is the duty of any employer to ensure that they take precautions to protect their employees from harassment, violence and stress.

This course meets the training requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1971. It also meets the requirements of CHAS, SafeContractor, Construction line, Exor and other SSIP registrations plus HSE safety training requirements.
