You already know if the violence erupts in your workplace the consequences can be unpredictable, and can be severe. These include, but are not limited to, injuries or death of employees, customers, and/or visitors from workplace violence, in lawsuits, property damage, increased insurance premiums, OSHA enforcement actions, increases employee turnover and reduced community trust.
In most workplaces where risk factors can be identified, the risk of assault can be prevented or minimized if employers know and take appropriate precautions.
One of the best protections employers can offer their workers is to establish a written policy toward workplace violence, covering all workers, patients, clients, visitors, contractors, and anyone else who may come in contact with company personnel. A low-cost workplace violence prevention program, combined with engineering controls, administrative controls and training can reduce the incidence of workplace violence in both private sector and government workplaces.
Why Should You Attend
This anti harassment training offers employers low- and no-cost ideas and resources for starting a workplace violence prevention and mitigation program.
Even though your organization may not be at high risk for violence, because the consequences can be devastating, protecting your team is just good business. And while nobody disputes the importance or preventing workplace violence, all too often it is not considered urgent. Except after the fact, when it is too late.
Every dollar spent on one thing is a dollar you don’t have to spend on something else. Will you have a workplace violence incident next month? Probably not. But for sure there’ll be payroll, insurance, rent, etc. that must be covered. Pay them or go out of business. But crossing your fingers and hoping for the best is not going to prevent or mitigate violence.
