Coeur d'Alene, ID, August 05, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Backup Training, LLC, one of the nation’s leading technology-based training providers for law enforcement, has announced the introduction of a new Workplace Threats training course. Designed for both employers and employees, the 4-hour computer-based course provides a wealth of practical information and expert instruction that could make the difference between life or death for individuals who are caught up in a violent episode in their workplace or other public space. The course provides insight and training for understanding behavioral characteristics, basic threat assessment, prevention and deterrence methods, and most importantly, proper responses to a variety of scenarios. It also offers employers suggestions on proper reporting, documenting and discipline for their employment policies.
“A perusal of virtually any popular media will convey the sense that no public space or workplace is immune from the threat of violence,” stated Rick Gallia, Backup Training’s Director of Operations. “Traditional crime, spillover domestic violence and workplace friction can all place innocent parties face-to-face with violence. Our goal with this course is twofold: to provide employers with some effective tools to help manage this risk in the workplace and also, to provide individuals with the techniques and understanding to maximize their chances to survive if they are suddenly faced with the unthinkable.”
The Blackwater Workplace Threats Course carries a $50 suggested retail price. More information can be found at http://www.thebackup.com/Workplace-Threats-P134.aspx.
