Preventing Workplace Violence Training
Preventing workplace violence is the responsibility of all organizations, regardless of the industry or work environment. Incidents of violence in the workplace are more common than most people think. While many incidents go unreported, each year nearly 2 million US workers report being a target of workplace violence, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Any act or threat of violence directed toward people at work or on duty is considered workplace violence, including bullying, verbal abuse, threats, intimidation, physical assaults and mass violence.
Awareness and preparation are key to preventing violence in the workplace and maintaining a safe and respectful work culture. Workplace violence prevention training is an essential component of a program to raise awareness of the different types of workplace violence and encourage employees to report their concerns and respond effectively when situations escalate.
