The single most effective thing that a school can do to eliminate bullying is to develop a whole school policy which involves all members of a school community including pupils, parents, teachers, non teaching staff and the wider community beyond the school gates. The key elements of a community approach are a shared understanding of bullying as a problem and a shared resolve to eliminate the problem. A whole community anti-bullying ethos encourages a shared responsibility and a willingness to report bullying incidents which might otherwise go unnoticed. Sign up online now!!

Program includes:
Pre-Incident Violence Prevention and Preparation
Addressing Violent or Threatening Incidents
Managing the Aftermath of an Incident
Legal Obligations and Duties of Employers
Bill #A03734 NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY: (other States are considering similar legislation)
Proposed legislation that would require employers (50 plus employee) to develop and implement programs to prevent WORKPLACE VIOLENCE
Wording of the Bill: "Workplace violence presents a serious occupational safety hazard for workers, but many EMPLOYERS and workers may be unaware of the risk. Moreover, the hazard of workplace violence is NOT currently addressed by any specific federal or state regulation".
Proposed amendment would create new section 200-A of the Labor Law
It would require said employers to develop and implement a WRITTEN WORKPLACE VIOLENCE PREVENTION PROGRAM including a reporting system of incidents of aggressive behavior
This SEMINAR will make employers AWARE of and PROVIDE a program pursuant to the guidelines of the International Association of Chiefs of Police for dealing with workplace violence. These guidelines dovetail with the proposed legislation. Successful application of these guidelines may well serve to attenuate civil liability in future incidents of workplace violence.
Registration: Security Management Institute, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, 899 Tenth Avenue, Suite 636T, New York, NY 10019-1029, USA. Tel 212-237-8638, fax 212-237-8637.
