Have You Properly Trained Your Employees to
Effectively Handle A Workplace Violence Incident?
The truth of the matter is that…
In the time that it takes for you to read this page, at least one employee, supervisor, manager, or business owner will have died as a result of violence in the workplace. By the end of today, about 13 men and women will have lost their lives, not on the streets or in some back-alley – not in a war or police action – but, on the job.
And, for every one of these victims – people just like you and I – people with hopes, dreams, family, friends, and their whole lives ahead of them – for every one of them…
…there are thousands more who will be assaulted, intimidated, raped, threatened, robbed, and more. And that’s just TODAY!
The recent, high-profile, high-intensity incidents that have occurred recently, the ones you’ve heard about on the news or read about in the paper or on your Yahoo or MSN newsfeed… are just the tip of the iceberg. The random nature of violence is being compounded by recent factors including, the state of the economy, the increase in stress, and shere lack of coping skills, means that things are going to get much worse than they have been in the past. The question is…
What Will You Do If the Prevention Measures You’ve Put into Place…
What will your employees do… during or, perhaps more importantly… AFTER an incident?
Can you handle the lost-time expense, both financially and productivity-wise that will occur? Can you weather the turn-over, or the publicity?
Can you survive the potential legal liability issues and actions that may arise. And, if so… for how long, and for how many?
If we could help you impliment training which would make your workplace more safe and secure – if we could teach you and your employees how to survive a deadly nightmare like those you’ve been seeing in the news, would you be interested?
Don’t Operate on Denial or Ignorance Like So Many Others…
Workplace violence has become the second leading cause of work-related death for employees, and the number one cause of work-related death for women and managers.
