Reducing and responding to workplace violence is the subject of a new seminar offered by Walters State Community College’s Office of Community Division. The workshop is Tuesday, June 26, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. in room 100 of the Walters State Greeneville/Greene County Campus. The cost is $175 and includes materials and lunch.
While most companies have fire evacuation plans, few know what to do if an act of violence occurs in the workplace. In reality, more businesses face violence than fire with over 800 fatalities a year resulting. This seminar covers OSHA’s five main elements of a workplace violence prevention plan; situational awareness; personal safety; verbal de-escalation and what to do if confronted with an active shooter.
