Policy and Procedure Development
Under OSHA’s General Duty Clause, an employer is required to protect its employees against “recognized hazards likely to cause serious injuries or death.” Working with your management team, we can help your organization develop workplace violence policies and procedures that meet industry standards and guidelines, are easy to understand and most importantly are sustainable. We spend time getting to understand your organization's unique requirements and then leverage our “real world” experience working with a broad range of organizations to develop their own violence prevention programs based on the following standards and guidelines:
American National Standard ASIS/SHRM WPVI.1-2011 – Workplace violence prevention and intervention.
Section 5(a)(1) of the OSHA Act, referred to as the “General Duty Clause” which requires that employers “furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.”
Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, or CPTED is the proper design and effective use of a built environment, which can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime.

Remember, it is not enough to just write a violence prevention policy. An effective program constantly evolves and always improves.
