1 out 3 organizations experienced workplace violence last year - most of these incidents were preventable.
No one wants to believe violence can happen in their own company. Unfortunately, that means even experienced HR professionals and managers often miss the warning signs or take too long to respond to threat in a situation where every second counts.
We will help you assess the risk of violence in your own company and learn what steps will have a real and lasting impact on everyone's safety. You'll be able to demonstrate that you've taken every precaution to provide a safe workplace for your employees. After all, if a violent incident ever does occur in your organization, you'll know you did everything possible to prevent it. Especially since you'll be dealing with the police, OSHA and the legal issues that inevitably follow these events.
