Now more than ever, organizations need to be proactive in the steps that they take to provide a safe working environment for their employees and customers. Our recognized violence prevention programs help organizations address potentially dangerous situations, and promote a culture of safety and respect within and across the organization.
One of the most important components of any enterprise-wide workplace violence prevention program is training. We know that any effective workplace violence prevention and intervention program must include initial and periodic refresher training for employees at all levels of the organization, including Threat Assessment Teams, managers and supervisors, general employees, front line employees and security and HR personnel.
Situational Awareness is the level of consciousness that we have of our immediate environment and the events happening around us. This training addresses situational awareness as it relates to personal safety. Designed for employees who work with the public, these training sessions equip participants to work with angry and disruptive customers and members of the public.
In an active shooter/intruder event, individuals must be ready to think, move quickly and rapidly adjust to a dynamic situation. That’s why it’s so critical to know what to do before such an event happens.
Participants also learn the concept of “situational awareness” and the importance of identifying a potentially dangerous situation, whether it is in the workplace, public, school or other environment.
Terminations are never easy, whether “for cause”, or as a part of a reduction in force or other restructuring. Sometimes concerns around terminating a particular employee are elevated, especially when the individual has a history of making threats or behaving in a threatening manner. In these cases, strategy and forethought are key; the primary goal in assisted termination is first and foremost to reduce the potential threat of workplace violence and reduce potential liability to your business.
A security assessment is an on-site assessment and review of current security measures, whether they are physical security measures, technology, operations, facilities, security management, policies, training or any other aspect of the security program or measures. WGI’s experts can help review the state of your organization’s current security protocols, suggest options to consider regarding security for new construction projects, or assist with other concerns related to the physical safety of your workplace.
Has your organization created and/or updated its workplace violence prevention policy? Does it reflect the current guidelines for providing a violence-free workplace for all employees? Such a policy should reflect the employer’s commitment to providing a safe workplace and should emphasize a code of conduct that prevents all violence, threats, and behavior that reasonably could be interpreted as an intent to cause physical harm, either on-site, or off site during work-related activities.
