An incident of workplace violence could have lifelong consequences for employees and their families. Human Resource Management offers Workplace Violence Prevention Training for all employees. Training is conducted by Sam Lunetta, retired University Police Lieutenant. Participation in this training is mandated for all public employees under NYS Labor Law §27b. NYS Labor Law §27b also mandates that all public employees participate in annual workplace violence prevention training. (Workplace Violence Prevention Policy)
Topics covered include recognizing warning signs for potential violence, assessing risk in various work settings, what to do and what not to do if presented with a violent situation, and campus resources available to prevent violence.
