Workplace Violence Is On The Rise…

  • Homicide is the No. 2 cause of fatal workplace injury in the U.S. – and the leading cause of work-related death for women.
    In the past decade the number of individuals who have killed their supervisors has doubled.
    Nearly two million people are physically or verbally assaulted on the job every year.
    Workplace violence is the top security threat to fortune 1000 companies.
  • Our workplace violence management workshop covers early identification of warning signs, recognition of potentially dangerous situations, personal factors associated with violence risk and the dynamics of developing confrontations. Verbal and non-verbal de-escalation and diffusion methods and the management of anger, fear and crisis are practiced. Illustration of risk scenarios is done through videotape material and through interactive demonstrations. Conflict resolution, effective responses for personal safety and non-violent intervention are explicitly addressed.
