Workplace Violence is on the increase and I believe that in the subsequent decade it will explode exponentially unless we have a tendency to are proactive!
The foremost difficult kind of workplace violence to forestall comes from individuals not affiliated with the company who have some grievance or grudge against the company itself or somebody working for the organization. Unless an exponent, neighbour or family member notices telltale warning signs and reports them it’s almost not possible to forestall random violence of this type.
The easiest varieties of violent acts to stop are those from individuals operating for the company. I say easiest only if you raise your awareness level, seek for, recognize and report the warning signs that are ALWAYS present before a violent workplace incident.
This text will specialise in preventing violence from individuals operating for the company.
At my seminars someone always asks: “What’s the single most important issue that one will do to boost their personal safety?” And the solution is: Get your head out of the sand! The explanation why a massive percentage of violent acts in the workplace return as a surprise is because folks just don’t want to believe what they’re seeing or hearing well before the incident occurs.
