Introduction
With more and more women joining the work force, women safety has become an important issue for organisations. It is unfortunate that the graph of crimes against women in our country has only been rising. Notwithstanding the law and the law enforcement agencies, it is important that organisations that employ women do their bit in ensuring that all their women employees are safe not only at work but also during their travel from home to the workplace and back. To assist such organisations towards this endeavour we have devised a specific workshop aimed at training security/HR/Admin professionals to ensure ‘women safety at Workplace’
