Workplace Violence Prevention
The Important role of Leadership in creating a “Culture of Safety” for your organization.
Workplace violence (WVP) prevention is a challenging and anxiety raising issue for most organizations. Leaders react to this problem in different ways:
- DENY: “It will never happen in our workplace.”
- GAMBLE: “I can’t justify the expense for something that may not happen here” or conversely,
- TAKE ACTION: Some leaders tackle the problem head on and act proactively to create a work environment where grievances and other behavioral issues are not allowed to fester into violence.
Which leader are you? Have you created a culture which emphasizes the importance of a safe, effective and productive work environment? This is what we call a “Culture of Safety”.
