    A little bird told me our local dispatch office is getting workplace violence awareness training. ( watch the vid, take the quest test and see your mgr to sign some sort of acknowledgement.) Supposed to be system wide. Anyone else get this yet? There been a rash of incidents lately? Or maybe they are getting ready for October surprise.

    Don't we all watch some dumb vid. and sign off on something on a computer like every 2 yrs. for this?

    Our "training" has been to acknowledge a "Y" or "N" in PRISM. Very extensive.

    Pretty much and just enough for the managers to cover their asses.

    Yep. When you go-off some morning after they collapse surrounding routes and drop 30 extra stops you your route, they can fire you for being a "risk".

    I've had to sign off on workplace violence videos at least 4 times in the last 2 years. I think there is more than one. I asked my mgr if they were trying to tell me something, but they really just get an email saying prism shows it due.

    ^^^^ Yep.
    I don't remember seeing any vids. but, I just check off "Y" on the screen, punch out and go home.
