Workplace Violence on Your Doorstep… 

It is difficult to get through any week without hearing a story about an act of workplace violence or an active shooter situation that occurred somewhere in the world.

Workplace violence is a potentially serious risk to any business or firm resulting in the potential for reduced productivity, decreased revenue, and loss of reputation.

Higher turnover results from the stress and potential traumatic after-effects of a violent incident.

  • This interactive session includes important information to assist you in protecting your firm, including discussing types of workplace violence that occur and the characteristics and warning signs of potential violence.

  • Additionally, learn steps that all firms and businesses can take to prevent acts of violence from occurring and discussing what to do if an active intruder enters your office or building will round out this session.
