Workplace Violence Prevention
Employees expect employers to provide them with a safe work environment. Most employers rely on feedback from employees about unusual or suspicious behavior. Therefore, it is imperative for the safety of your organization, workplace and employees, that all are on the same page and understand the symptoms of violence-prone behavior.
Someone having a bad day is one thing; but violence affects ALL of us. We must recognize the warning signs and then speak up. The signs of violence are usually present and visible before anyone comes in firing a gun. This short program shares powerful and direct messages regarding workplace violence.
A single incident of workplace violence can create considerable harm—to the individuals involved, to the team, to the organization's reputation and to the bottom line. Managers need to know how to diffuse potentially threatening situations to keep the workplace safe.
You, your employees, and even visitors to your company are at risk—every day. Now, help your employees be S.A.F.E.: Stay aware; Analyze the situation; Factor in feelings; Engage in a solution.
Employees play a very important role in preventing violence in the workplace. They're on the front lines; they may be the first ones to see behavior in a co-worker, customer or vendor that makes them uncomfortable or even scared. The Threat Detector program will clarify what these behaviors are and what action to take when you see them.
It is essential that we are prepared—physically and emotionally—for traumatic situations. This training gathers a group of leading experts in the field of trauma to offer practical suggestions to those directly (or indirectly) affected by traumatic incidents in the workplace and beyond.
