Safe & Sound: Building a Violence-Free Workplace

Workplace violence encompasses any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other disruptive behavior that occurs within or is related to the work environment. It can range from verbal abuse and threats to actual physical assaults or worse. Workplace violence not only jeopardizes the safety and well-being of employees but also undermines organizational morale, productivity, and overall effectiveness.
What can you do about it? Prevention efforts often involve comprehensive risk assessments, employee training on conflict resolution and de-escalation techniques, clear communication of policies and procedures, and fostering a culture of respect and support within the workplace. A company that supports its employees with effective training will have a more successful and safer workplace.
