**For Immediate Release**
Workplace Violence Seminar to be Held Saturday
- released by OPSU Campus Communications 07-11-06

Goodwell, Okla. — Oklahoma Panhandle State University’s Adult and Continuing Education department invites all area citizens to attend a free, informative seminar this Saturday, July 15. Entitled “Workplace Violence,” it will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Texas County Activity Center. The Oklahoma Regional Community Policing Institute (ORCPI) is providing the seminar to equip citizens with tools to respond to violence in the workplace.

The course provides employers and law enforcement with guidelines on the steps they should consider to help reduce certain workplace violence hazards. The course focuses on violence committed by non-strangers (e.g., coworkers, bosses, clients, domestic partners) within a common worksite (e.g., factory, office, shop, construction site). It also addresses workplace violence that occurs while employees are off-site, including robbery, terrorism, and assault.

The course provides 8 hours of Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET) education for police officers. The free seminar is made possible by sponsors including Bank of the Panhandle, Main Street Guymon, Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma, Wal-Mart, Homeland, Guymon Firefighters Club, Professional Firefighters of Guymon Local 256 and the Guymon EMS Association. For more information or to reserve a spot, contact Estela Vedoy at 580-349-1550.
