A reality in safety practice is that in most workplaces, the safety practitioner is alone in identifying, prioritizing and recommending interventions to their senior managers. And a reality in the emerging economy is that virtually every position is required to perform at a higher level with less and less support. Add to that an increasingly hostile public/client environment and the elements for a very stressful, sometimes violent workplace is apparent. This course helps safety practitioners identify those risk factors that create and perpetuate hostile environments, and includes a number of proven strategies for mitigating or reducing the risks of those negative encounters within the organization, or from the public. This course is a required for the completion of the Diploma in Health, Safety and Environmental Management (SHEM) offered through Great Plains College.
