Workplace Violence Prevention is Smart Business
Workplace Violence Prevention is Smart Business Workplace terminations are never pleasant and can be dangerous if there is any suspicion that terminated employees may react violently. Human resource and personnel managers should be aware of this possibility and rely on their previous experiences with employees to make security conscious judgments regarding high risk terminations. Eagle Protective can help you take proper steps to minimize the danger to yourself or other employees through workplace violence prevention planning and provide an on-site presence during and after the termination. Prior to the termination, Eagle Protective security professionals are available to consult with you to assist with the termination process, to coordinate your corporate security department, or involve local law enforcement. In cases where threats of violence have been made by employees who are being terminated, a thorough investigation should be conducted and action plans established in the event of problems. In more than 90% of workplace violence incidents perpetrators have told acquaintances that he or she would commit the act before it happened. Eagle Protective also provides training to assist management to recognize, evaluate and implement action plans for workplace violence prevention.
