Workplace Violence Prevention and Response
The threat of violence in our workplaces and communities is ever present. An estimated two million U.S. workers experienced violence on the job every year, including an average of 16,400 threats and 723 workers being attacked or harassed. Fortunately, there are almost always clear warning signs to indicate when violence may be imminent. Unfortunately, these warning signs are often overlooked
Every employee in an organization has a role in providing a safe and secure workplace. The goal of this course is to increase employees’ awareness of the potential for violence and more importantly how to recognize the warning signs and understanding of what actions can be taken to prevent or minimize violence.
Our programs are Evidence Informed and Experienced Applied. In other words, we incorporate current studies and research balanced with decades of field experience and “lessons learned” from real cases.
