What’s the course about?

Violence at Work

Violence at work is a topic that people in senior roles often avoid talking about. However, crime surveys tell us that there are a significant number of violent occurrences and even more threats to employees each year, particularly when online threats are taken into account. Employees don’t need to be in ‘high risk’ roles to be affected either, with people being affected in all walks of life and many different jobs.

The Health and Safety Executive defines Violence at Work as any incident in which a person is abused, threatened or assaulted in circumstances relating to their work.

This includes:

  • Verbal abuse
    shouting, swearing or insults, sexual harassment or other unwanted advances/behaviour, and racial abuse
  • Threats and intimidation
    including from customers/patrons
  • Physical violence
    physical attacks including a slap, kicking, spitting or shoving as well as more extreme violence.

Aside from the considerable impact on the individual, violence at work can affect businesses too. Some of the known implications are; higher sick leave, low productivity and profitability and issues with recruitment and retention of staff. Being aware of, and knowing how to manage and reduce risks should be top of all managers priorities. This e-learning course provides everything required to heighten awareness of workplace violence concerns and to help control the risks.

Who is it for?

This e-learning course is particularly appropriate for managers or people in leadership roles who should be aware of the potential for violence at work and how they can best protect and support employees.

While some professions may be more at risk of violent incidents, the truth is everyone in all types of roles may be at danger of violence at work.

In order for employees and companies to be protected, we recommend this violence at work e-learning becomes a part of each senior employee’s induction.
