Every workplace needs to be a safe and respectful environment, and employers are required by law to keep the workplace free of workplace violence. Many work places struggle as they try to develop and implement policies and procedures to prevent and address domestic violence in the workplace. Violence Prevention Grey Bruce can help with training that is customized to employer and employee needs. We are proud to offer certified training through the Make It Our Business www.makeitourbusiness.com workplace violence program. For over five years VPGB has worked with the Centre for Research and Education at Western University to offer workplace training in Grey Bruce. Over 40 workplaces in Grey Bruce have completed this training and are workplace champions.
