Workplace Violence Prevention Training Benefits
When it comes to Workplace Violence (WPV) Prevention, knowledge is power.
The extent to which WPV training can make a significant impact is highlighted in this infographic which compares trained employees to untrained employees in 3 critical areas: Awareness & Prevention, Extreme Violence Response, and Long Term Impact.
The infographic also reveals how a WPV Prevention initiative can align with other key workplace culture initiatives you may have underway. For example:
- Effective WPV awareness and prevention training enables people to take informed action when they witness alarming behavior, and helps overcome any hesitancy to do so. This builds on training that equips them to bring forward concerns they have around such disruptive conduct as bullying, harassment, and discrimination while helping build a culture where people look out for one another.
- According to SHRM, 1 in 7 employees does not feel safe from violence at work. Training people on what to do should an extreme act of violence occur can reduce their anxiety. Ensuring people have been taught the actions to take should something like this occur demonstrates your organization’s concern for employee wellbeing and makes a positive impact on the Employee Experience.
Our Getting Real About Workplace Violence program is unparalleled training built on the truth that awareness and preparation increase the likelihood that employees can prevent and survive workplace violence. The course aligns with ANSI 2020 standards.
