Workplace Violence Prevention Training

Violence in the workplace is a serious safety and health issue for all of us. The University at Buffalo does not tolerate violence in any form on campus.  While most workplaces are free from violence, it is important that all of us are aware of what we can do to help prevent an incident on campus. 

In this course, we will help you to:

  • recognize situations that have the potential to become violent,
