Workplace Violence Prevention
An incident of workplace violence could have lifelong consequences for employees and their families. The Human Resource Management Office offers Workplace Violence/Domestic Violence Prevention Training for all employees. Sessions are conducted by Sam Lunetta, retired University Police lieutenant. Annual participation in this training is mandated for all public employees under New York State Labor Law Section 27-b.
Topics covered include recognizing warning signs for potential violence, assessing risk in various work settings, what to do and not to do if presented with a violent situation, and campus resources available to prevent violence.
One-hour sessions will be held from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. in Cleveland Hall 418 on Tuesday, January 15, and Wednesday, January 16. Visit the Human Resources website or call ext. 4822 to register for one of the sessions.
This mandated training is also available online for those unable to attend the group sessions. Employees may access the program on ANGEL. (Go to the "Campus Groups" section and select the “Workplace Violence Prevention Group.”)
An online refresher course is also available on ANGEL for employees who completed the Workplace Violence Prevention training last year.
