Workplace Violence Prevention Policy and Procedures

A-B Tech is committed to providing everyone associated with the College a work and learning environment that is safe and free of violence. To this end, the College prohibits any form of violence. 

Reporting Threats or Acts of Violence 

1. Every member of the College community is responsible for reporting any threats or acts of violence that he/she has witnessed, received, or have been told that another person has witnessed or received. Even without an actual threat, members of the College community should report any behavior he/she has witnessed which he/she regards as threatening or violent when that behavior is job related, might be carried out on College property, or is connected to College employment or activities. 

2. Reports should be made immediately to A-B Tech Police. 

3. The College will investigate all threats or acts of violence promptly and objectively. 

Threats or Acts of Violence 

Any member of the College community who threatens or commits an act of violence toward other persons or property on campus, while engaged in any work for or on behalf of the College, or a College sponsored event, shall be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal from employment, expulsion from the College, and/or banishment from campus, exclusive of any civil and/or criminal penalties that may be pursued, as appropriate. No existing College policy, practice, or procedure shall supersede prevention or acts of violence or threats as defined in this Policy.
