Domestic Violence in the Workplace

Domestic Violence is not a private matter: We all have a role to play.

Are you concerned about someone you think is being abused, but don’t know what to do? This workshop will provide you with some of the warning signs and the steps you can take to help. Neighbours, Friends and Families is a campaign to raise awareness of the signs of abuse so that people who are close to an at-risk person or an abuser can help. Everyone in the community has a role to play in helping to prevent abuse.

This workshop, facilitated by Graham Shanks, NC’s manager of Health and Safety, is part of the new on-board training for new hires.
