Middle Tennessee State University's Executive Education Program is offering a half-day workplace violence training seminar to the public.
The seminar will be beneficial for business owners, managers, employees and others who are looking to learn about the legal implications of workplace violence and how to create a workplace violence plan.
The four-hour seminar will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 14, in the Jones College of Business Executive Education Center located in the Miller Education Center, 503 E. Bell St. The cost is $250 and seating is limited.
Organizers note that while federal guidelines state that an employer has a legal obligation to keep their employees safe, many employers do not have a plan to address threats or active shooter incidents.
The seminar will teach attendees how to create a workplace violence plan and a crisis response team, how to respond to violence, how to document incidents and what the legal ramifications are.
The instructor is Susan K. Bradley, J.D., a certified CPI Prepare Training Program instructor. She also teaches Legal Environment of Business and Industrial Relations Legislation at MTSU.
