Emergencies involving violence are unfortunately a real possibility in today’s workplace, school or public venue. One of your job responsibilities is to be prepared and know how to respond should such an emergency occur at your workplace. Knowing the proper procedures to follow during an emergency could mean the difference between life and death. The purpose of this program is to familiarize attendees with basic response practices when encountering violent emergencies. 

This program will provide attendees with a high-level overview of industry best practices with respect to employers and their responsibilities as they relate to training their employees in the event of a violent emergency / workplace violence.

The best protection employers can offer is to establish a zero-tolerance policy toward workplace violence against or by their employees. The employer should establish a workplace violence prevention and training program or incorporate the information into an existing accident prevention program, employee handbook, or manual of standard operating procedures. It is critical to ensure that all employees know the policy and understand that all claims of workplace violence will be investigated and remedied promptly. Violent emergencies are a life safety topic and training is becoming increasingly important. Employers are responsible for this training.
