Barrier Delay Measures and The Double Edged Sword
While assisting a reporter after the Uvalde shooting, a question was posed that maybe warrants some discussion. During the interview, I described some examples of
The first line of defense against workplace violence is developing a framework of preventive policies and procedures to define aggressive behavior, employee safety protocols, and response to threatening situations.
To assist clients in this process, our team of workplace violence prevention consultants work collaboratively with decision-makers to design policies and procedures addressing issues such as pre-employment screening, employee behavior and threat reporting, safe termination procedures, and management actions in response to behavior of concern.
Another component of workplace violence prevention is establishing a system for assessing and managing potential threat situations. Many acts of workplace homicide are precipitated by communications or behavior that, if properly recognized and assessed, can indicate a developing risk situation and facilitate intervention before crisis occurs.
CIS consultants assist in developing corporate threat assessment programs by authoring necessary plans and documentation systems, training corporate threat assessment teams, and providing expert assistance in practical implementation during crisis situations.
For organizations seeking best defense against potential liability, CIS consultants can develop a complete workplace violence prevention and intervention program in compliance with best practice guidelines as outlined in ASIS International’s new WVPI-2020/AA, Workplace Violence and Active Assailant – Prevention, Intervention, and Response Standard.
The Guardian SafeWorkplace Program™ employs a multi-layered strategy aimed at preventing active shooter violence while employing performance-based physical security measures and emergency preparations to reduce the impact of events.
