Junior’s Restaurant and Taphouse, 414 S. Main Street, in River Falls, is hosting bystander intervention training on Feb. 27, 28 and March 2 at 6 p.m.
With the leadership of general manager Jeff Wesley, Junior’s employees are participating in the training sessions that are open to the public.
The training conversations are facilitated by Turningpoint in partnership with the Safe Bar Network, a national nonprofit focused on partnering with bars and other alcohol-serving venues to increase safety.
Junior’s has shown a commitment to safety. As a demonstration of this commitment, more than 50 of their employees are participating in the SAFE Bar Training conversation, putting a renewed focus on creating a workplace culture focused on safety.
The Safe Bar Network training conversation focuses on teaching the employees of
bars and other alcohol-serving venues the skills to notice uncomfortable and unsafe behavior, interrupt to help and create an environment where everyone is focused on a fun, safe night out. As a result of training, 97% of participants know at least one way that they will prevent sexual harassment and assault.
