ServSafe Workplace debuts harassment prevention programs

The National Restaurant Association officially launched its online training suite of programs focused on sexual harassment prevention. They are the first in the Association’s new ServSafe Workplace training line.

The programs, Sexual Harassment Prevention in the Restaurant Industry and Sexual Harassment Prevention in the Hospitality Industry, are interactive, digital, training programs that address sexual harassment and the harmful impact it has on individuals and businesses. Each program features employee and manager versions.

Developed specifically for the foodservice and hospitality industries, this courses offer scenario-based learning and emphasize the impact to individuals and the responsibility each employee has for maintaining a respectful, inclusive workplace.

“The National Restaurant Association is committed to equipping our members with the tools they need to promote a positive workplace,” said President and CEO Dawn Sweeney. “ServSafe Workplace’s new Sexual Harassment Prevention training programs provide operators with valuable resources to build and maintain a safe and respectful work environment.”

Key objectives of the employee version of the program include:

  • Defining sexual harassment and the two forms it can take
  • Understanding the harmful impact sexual harassment can have on victims, businesses, and those who harass
  • Recognizing conduct that’s appropriate, and not appropriate, for work.
  • Understanding when and how to report sexual harassment

The Manager edition focuses on the vital role managers play in creating and promoting a harassment-free workplace culture and provides them with the tools they need to respond confidently and appropriately to sexual harassment claims.

“The ServSafe team is excited to offer this timely training to our industries,” said Sherman L. Brown, the Association’s executive vice president of training and certification. “The strong response to the complimentary Sexual Harassment Prevention webinars we presented this summer shows that people in both foodservice and hospitality are eager to learn how to address this issue and change the culture. We are proud to provide them with the tools to make that happen.”
