Training course in the prevention of hate, threats and violence


Lund University is, on the whole, a safe and secure workplace, but from time to time there are situations that can be perceived as - or are actually - threatening or violent. We cannot prepare for everything, but the more situations we can anticipate and endeavour to prevent, the better equipped we will be to address any situations that may arise.

This basic training course aims to increase knowledge about how to prevent threatening and violent situations within the context of LU’s activities. The purpose of the training course is also to alert all employees to the procedures that are in place to deal with threats and violence situations should they arise. All employees must complete the training course.

The aim of the training course is to ensure that both managers and employees at the workplace have a clearer action plan to prevent the risks of threatening and violent situations, and that all employees are aware of the procedures for dealing with such situations and how these procedures should be followed.

The training course is conducted in two parts: a filmed lecture and a discussion exercise with accompanying written supervision. The film lasts about 30 minutes. About 1 hour must be set aside to conduct the discussion exercise. The idea is that the manager should set aside time with her/his working group and conduct the training course. They can gain access to the supervision material from their nearest HSE coordinator.
