UPCOMING CHAPTER EVENTS

Webinar: Aware-not Scare – Workplace Violence Refresher
This webinar event is FREE. Members must register to receive the link.

This 50 minute presentation is multifaceted and focuses on a variety of topics, such as workplace violence indicators, response techniques, law enforcement response, and reintegration. The main premise is to “aware – not scare”. Unfortunately, extreme levels of workplace violence and public mass shootings are all too commonly seen in the media these days. To maintain a strong and ongoing commitment to providing a safe work environment for our employees, we sometimes must address subjects that might seem unthinkable or that might even make some uncomfortable.

The information in this presentation can be applied to any size company environment but can also save your life outside of the workplace.

The webinar is FREE but you must register in advance to receive the link for log in. We also encourage chapter members to support the Greater Boston Food Bank as we enter the holiday season. All donations through our Facebook Donation Portal go directly to The Greater Boston Food Bank in helping their mission to end hunger across Eastern Massachusetts.

The chapter can issue CEU certificates for attending.
