Workplace Violence Training
You canít seem to pick up a newspaper or watch the news on TV without something happening to confirm that a growing problem in Americaís work places has been the instance of Workplace Violence. Some 2 million American workers are victims of this phenomenon each year. Workplace violence can strike anywhere, and no one is immune to it.
The Lansing Police Department takes actual or potential incidents of workplace violence very seriously. Unfortunately, they are sometimes put into positions of having to react to an incident that is occurring or has already occurred, when with a little bit of preparation and prevention many of these problems could be avoided.
With this in mind, we have developed a program to address the issue of Workplace Violence. The program includes a training presentation for businesses to address some of the issues concerning workplace violence and how to better prepare for it should it occur. Materials included in the program, which lasts approximately one to one and a half hours, includes:
Workplace Violence Defined
Extent of Workplace Violence throughout
Which Businesses are at Greatest Risk for Workplace Violence
Warning signs of Workplace Violence
Recommendations for a Workplace Violence Program & Policy
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design
Workplace Violence Planning
How to Deal with Potential Offenders
Lansing Police Department Workplace Violence Notification Program
In addition to the training program, we have developed a protocol for our businesses to be able to quickly share information on potential Workplace Violence incidents so that they can either attempt to prevent or to respond to these incidents in the safest and most effective manner possible.If you think your business could benefit from this presentation and would like to set up an appointment or if you have any questions concerning this program, you may contact Sergeant Biron at 708/895-7130 or Officer Bill Kowalski at 708/895-7140.
