WPV Myths vs Realities

No workplace is immune to the effects of workplace violence. The questions are, "What threats should you be prepared for?", and "Are your plans and training on the mark and effective?" Remember, violence is random by nature and can occur anywhere. But, that doesn't mean you can't be prepared!

Hospitals, Schools, Companies...

Every industry is unique and has it's own primary and secondary threats when it comes to violence in the workplace. Just as HR managers have a different attacker type from, say, nurses... so to every company's workplace violence plans, procedures, and training program should be unique and tailored to them.

“The programs delivered by WCI’s Jeffrey Miller exceeded our expectations. The information and delivery was not only well-thought out and on-target with what we needed, but it was also very different from the same rehashed materials that we had encountered in the past. It became clear, after the very first presentation, that WCI would be the company of choice for Ronin Consultants’ employee self-protection training.
— Erskine R. Harris, President, Ronin Consultants Corp”

““Mr. Miller’s approach to self protection and occupational/work-place safety is both thorough and effective…for, average people without the need for years of training. Mr. Miller teaches effective tactics for dealing with all stages of a developing situation, but his brains-over-brawn approach emphasizes the use of awareness and strategy to help avoid the need for physical confrontation.”
— John Healy, Personal Development Coach, Mississaugua, Ontario, Canada

The Science of Self-Protection

Most executives and administrators avoid adding this type of training and preparation because they believe self-defense equals “fighting.” But, in reality, there are many more phases to the self-defense and safety paradigm which can stop an attack or protect an employee or staff member – LONG before an actual attack is launched! Is this kind of limited, backwards thinking keeping your company in danger and exposed to potential financial and other losses?

  • Workplace Violence Doesn’t Always Occur on Company Property! Defense Training For Utility Workers

    by Jeffrey M. Miller SPS, DTI   Contrary to popular belief, workplace violence does not always involve one employee attacking another. Another popular misconception is that a workplace violence incident must occur within your company's walls for it to be considered such. But, the reality is that, the opposite is often true in many cases! Put these two misconceptions together and you will see that there is a group of workers who [...]

Too many security consultants, self-defense trainers, and “workplace violence experts” promise results but few truly deliver. The biggest reason is that they don’t understand the true nature of violence, and would rather sell you services and programs that are nothing more than templated, “cookie-cutter” approaches, “feel-good” messages, and the same half-complete OSHA suggestions which far too many businesses are relying on for the safety of their employees. The truth is that they just don’t have the real-world experience and understanding about how to protect yourself, your employees, and your business from actual, physical acts of violence in the workplace.
WCI Consulting is lead by internationally-recognized self-protection expert, Jeffrey M. Miller SPS, DTI. Jeff has been in the law enforcement, security, and self-protection training fields since 1981, and has actual real-world experience at handling the kind of raw, animalistic violence that most people refuse to even think about – the kind of violence that a real attacker will unleash on you, regardless of whether you’re prepared or not.
What this means is that he has actually used what he will teach you, on the street and in his own company, to escape from, de-escalate, or defend against real attacks. He is not another “talking head,” but an educator, and he is vested in helping you to provide the critical pieces to your workplace violence policies, procedures, and employee training program – the pieces which determine if you’ll be safe or, like so many others, will leave you open to not only attack, but to the financial, legal, and PR issues which can arise in the aftermath of a violent incident.

To put it clearly, when you implement our workplace violence safety training, you will truly have a complete workplace violence prevention and action plan. Please note, however; you must have a viable budget for employee training, policy development or security consulting and want more than a computer-accessed slide show and quiz that your employees can take during their lunch break in order for us to work with you. If you have no employee training, security consulting or policy-development budget, we may still have several programs to help you.

Two Action Steps you can take right now:

    • Save hundreds of thousands of dollars by reading all the way to the middle of this page to see “The Four Critical But Overlooked Elements of a Complete Workplace Violence Plan, as outlined by OSHA, Yet Missing from virtually every Employee Training Program Today!
    • Now, look to the right-hand side of our page and sign up for our complimentary newsletter right now. We value and protect your privacy and will never send more than than a few newsletters a month, which are completely focused on providing you and your employees with the best chance of surviving against an act of violence in the workplace. When you subscribe, you will also receive a complimentary copy of a special report we put together consisting of actual articles on the subject, written by Jeffrey M. Miller SPS, DTI.

    At WCI Consulting, we are changing the model for how workplace violence consulting and employee training is delivered. The old model is broken, as evidenced by the massive failures of the workplace violence plans and procedures already in place and supposed to protect teachers, students and employees against violent attackers in recent years. Trainers and consultants must be accountable for what they provide to you – action steps and procedures that will actually work when they’re needed mostwhen you and your people are face-to-face with an actual assault, violent attack, or active shooter out for blood!
    We know that discussing these things, especially in this manner, is not “PC.” But a meeting and a report do not constitute security, increased awareness, improved employee safety, decreased liability, and a training program that will work after we are gone. When you choose WCI Consulting, and implement our time-tested and proven strategies and tactics, your company will transform into a more secure workplace, with less stress and turn-over — a place where your employees and visitors will feel safe, and potential attackers will fear and see as a poor target for their misguided and irrational intentions.
    PLEASE NOTE: If you want templated policies, “canned” training and/or presentations, and hackneyed advice, or you’re just trying to make a show of security and safety – then we are not for you. But if your company is ready and committed to real safety and having a complete, dependable workplace violence prevention and response plan, then we are your partner and we only deliver results!
    When you work with us, you will have a customized workplace violence plan – one that tells you everything you need to know — things like:
    • how to layout your offices and workspaces for greater control, safety and handling of violence or the potential for it
    • how to de-escalate a threat of violence using all levels of communication (i.e. Words, body language, facial expressions, etc.)
    • how to evade, shield against, or escape from gunfire
    • effective, liability-conscious self-defense and personal safety techniques and tactics
    • our unique and proprietary 8-phase plan for effective, strategic attack avoidance, assault evasion, and personal safety against violence in the workplace
    • how to train your people and on what subjects based on their job, duties, and work environment; and…
    • exactly how to make sure that your workplace violence plan, policies, and procedures are complete.

    But, more importantly…
    You will have a plan and employee training program that works when you need it most – during an actual act or threat of violence!
    When you partner with us, the result is a dramatic increase in real security and safety, rather than false confidence. To make sure you will take full advantage of your new procedures, WCI Consulting offers a complete workplace safety checkup, along with comprehensive safety and response training and ongoing assistance.
    Are you concerned about the increase in the number of workplace violence incidents, school and workplace shootings, and attacks on workers? Are you looking to build better workplace violence safety procedures, increase your facility’s security measures, or impliment life-saving training that will protect you and your employees during a catastrophic and terroristic attack in your business? Do you want to make the necessary changes and impliment the right kind of employee training in your business instead of blindly following everyone else in your industry and “hoping it never happens to you”?
    If you answered yes to any of these questions, then adding a Warrior Concepts program into your employee training mix may be the one decision that will determine whether your business is targeted by someone considering an act of violence or not. WCI Consulting takes a very direct, targeted approach to helping you protect your business, your facility, and your people. Rather than focusing on the two components that every other security consultant, trainer, and workplace violence expert limits themselves to – prevention and reporting – we target the missing pieces of the puzzle – the “hole-in-the-donut” so-to-speak.
    We look at all the factors that make it possible for an attack to occur, and that will allow your people to survive a sudden, random act of workplace violence – and design a training program, set of procedures, or ammended policies specific to your company’s needs.

    The Four Critical But Overlooked Elements of a Complete Workplace Violence Plan, as outlined by OSHA, Yet Missing from virtually every Employee Training Program Today are:


    • ATTACK AVOIDANCE

    • ASSAULT EVASION

    • PERSONAL SAFETY

    • SELF-DEFENSE

    And the responsibility for the safety of your employees falls squarely on your shoulders.
    Employee Safety & Facility Security Happens When YOU Take Action. Increased lost-time incidents, employee stress, legal action, negative PR, financial loss and the potential for business failure can happen when you don’t. Like accounting, operations, marketing and sales – security and workplace violence prevention and response require disciplined, focused effort every day.
