Workplace Violence Prevention Training In July

Attending training on workplace violence prevention is required by New York State Workplace Violence Prevention Law for all faculty and staff. Those who attended a session of Preventing Workplace Violence in 2007-08 or Civility and Violence (same class with new name) in 2008-09 at Baruch College do not have to attend upcoming sessions. In addition to helping the College reach full compliance, you will gain awareness on this important issue and be able to address concerns earlier, thereby helping to eliminate or minimize threatening incidents to maintain a secure, safe, and healthy campus environment for all of us. Baruch College is committed to ensuring a safe and secure academic and work environment for all members of the College.

Remaining training dates include:

Date Time Location
Thursday, July 22 10:00 am – 12:00 pm VC 14-269
Tuesday, July 27 10:00 am – 12:00 pm VC 14-269
