Training - Violence at work

The HSE’s definition of violence is ‘Any incident in which an employee is abused, threatened or assaulted in circumstances relating to their work.’ This means verbal abuse or threats count just as much as physical attacks.

This course provides awareness of potential high risk situations and occupations together with practical guidance on avoidance techniques.
