Violence in the workplace has unfortunately become something that we must all consider. Employers and those responsible for others, such as educators, are taking decisive steps to prevent violence in the workplace and to prepare those within their care.
We take workplace violence seriously, and to support our policy and expectations, we have prepared a Practical
Preparedness for Workplace Violence training course for employees. This new training course is available on-line
through the NCI at Frederick training portal. Expectations
for taking this training are outlined below.
This training is mandatory for all Leidos Biomedical Research, Inc. employees. During the month of July, Directorates
are expected to provide this training to employees in group settings where the materials can be reviewed and discussed
amongst workgroups. Training rosters must be completed
and returned to EHS at EHS@mail.nih.gov.
For employees unable to attend the group training, they may take the course on-line; however, it is strongly advised
to attend a group session if possible. All employees must complete the training by August 30, 2014.
At this time, training for non-Leidos employees working at any of the NCI in Frederick facilities, to include
main campus, ATRF, VPP, Wedgewood, and others is strongly encouraged, but optional unless directed by your management.
More information can be found on our Workplace Violence webpage. Please
contact EHS at 301-846-1451 or EHS@mail.nih.gov if you have any questions or feedback regarding the course materials.
