Workplace Violence – think it can’t happen to you?  Think again……

Statistics show it happens in all industries; manufacturing, retail, wholesale, even construction! Workplace violence is the fourth-leading cause of fatal occupational injuries in the United States.

Violence in the workplace is a very real and serious safety and health issue.  For that reason OSHA has even issued a guidebook for handling violence in the workplace and is discussing whether to implement standards!

There is no sure way to predict someone’s behavior; no specific profile of a potentially dangerous person.  There may be warning signs, there may not be.  Their hostile actions may not even be work-related, but arise from a domestic situation or “road rage” attitude. 

Whatever the cause or the outcome, you as the employer need to provide a safe workplace for your employees.  Do you have safeguards in place?  Do your managers and employees know what to do if workplace violence occurs?

There are many ways to obtain information and training on this issue. 

We are even offering a workshop to help educate employers.

This presentation/workshop focuses on recognizing the early warning signs that precedes an attack and how best to react if an incident occurs.  Nationally, American businesses lose $32 to $36 billion a year in revenue, productivity, low employee morale, absenteeism and legal fees arising from the combination of workplace and domestic violence impacting the workplace.


Attend this seminar and learn how to create a healthy work environment as well as how to prevent problems before they happen.
