As most of us are aware, violence on the job manifests itself in many forms; from emotional abuse to bullying to assault and even homicide. While the latter is the least common, it is the most devastating to employees, families, employers and their communities.

This program provides employees, managers and executives with information and strategies on recognizing and responding to the dynamic challenges and issues of violent incidents within the workplace.
An armed intruder situation is something few of us have prepared for. And it’s that lack of preparation that raises anxiety…and fear. Training increases our ability to take appropriate action. It gives us a greater sense of preparedness, which will help with anxiety and stress levels - especially during a shooter situation.
Being prepared begins with…accepting the reality that today’s world demands us to be ready for the unexpected. AND… changing the way YOU see your environment. For example, if you’re in a location where there are crowds of people, pay close attention to the space around you. This module covers the principles & techniques of the “3-OUT” PREVAIL! model (GET OUT | LOCK OUT | TAKE OUT).
