Training available to Members as a members only benefit
As a member of NCPSO you can take advantage of a number of different training opportunities that can assist you in your work place. In your profession you are held to the highest professional standards. No one who takes a post in any facility of the Department of Corrections can afford to approach their job in a light hearted manner. You are called upon to be professional at all times, If you fall short of those professional standards you will be held accountable. Your environment is a dangerous one where risk of physical violence, increase risk of exposure to infectious disease and mental fatigue is always present. With these facts in mind NCPSO has designed training programs for our members to help you excel in your environment. In this business you can never afford to take short cuts because you will be held accountable for what is in policy. Learn your policies, know and do your job and don't take short cuts. Below are some of the trainings offered to our members.
1. Training on Personnel Policies; as a correctional officer of the Depart of corrections you need to know what is in your personnel policies. NCPSO can help you be more efficient in these polices. Knowing policy and following policy can help keep you out of harms way.
2. Workers Compensation Training; most employees never know how important it is to be familiar with the State's Workers Compensation Laws until something happens, they get injured on the job and maybe have to go out on disability because of those injuries. There is an old saying, "it is to late to run and close the barn door after the horse has already gotten away". Don't wait until something happens to learn what to do in workers compensation cases.
3. Grievance Training; every employee who is charged with an offense is not always guilty of what they are charge with. In like manner if an employee did commit and infraction, what level should it rise to and are all employees being dealt with consistently across the board. The Grievance process is for to address workplace disputes. It is of no use to you if you don,t know how to use it. Grievance Training comes in two phases, phase 1 & phase 11. These are 8 hour courses for both phases. When a class completes phase 1 we generally schedule phase 11 for another week at the end of the phase one class. At least six participants are needed to conduct a Grievance training.
Health and Safety Training; This training involves the OSHA Rules and Laws: We hope our Verizon private sector, DJJ and our DOC correctional employees will all sign up for this training. Every worker in the Commonwealth need to know and understand the OSHA Rules and Laws. As stated above, it is to late to close the barn door after the horse has already gotten away. Knowing how to protect yourself on the job is knowing how to protect your future and your families future. In this class we should have a minimum of at least 20 participants.
