business people talkingYou’ve heard about workplace shootings on the news and it probably fills you with fear that you may one day encounter a similar act of violence while on the job. But the scarier truth is that it’s much more than gun violence plaguing the workplace. Unchecked aggression can lead to:
  • Verbal or physical threats and/or harassment

  • Assaults

  • Bullying

  • Sexual harassment

  • Any other acts that make you feel unsafe
As a business owner, it’s up to you to maintain a safe workplace and address tempers before things get out of hand. The best way to prevent workplace violence is by being proactive, which is vital for keeping your employees safe and healthy.

In addition to your staff’s safety, workplace violence can also threaten your business as a whole. This is because the business is liable for what happens on premises, from a threat to leak customer data to actual acts of physical violence. The business will be responsible for injuries, but you’ll also likely have to do some damage control as well to save the company’s reputation.

How can you prevent workplace violence? Try some of these tips whenever a questionable incident occurs.
  • Once aware of a potentially dangerous circumstance, report the responsible party and note the threatening behavior.

  • Act in accordance with any guidelines laid out if there’s a company violence policy or violence prevention program.

  • Avoidance can cause the problem to fester, so brush up on methods of diffusing the reason for the aggression. All managers should be trained on these methods.

  • Employees should be trained to alert a manager if they discover a possible threat.
Though prevention is key, it won’t always stop a violent act from threatening your employees and customers. Ask your independent insurance agent how insurance can help protect the business from similar threats.
