    1. Get the Benefits of Workplace Safety Training Programs Violence or even threat of violence (ranging from verbal abuse to physical assaults, homicide, sexual harassment or assault, maltreatment, extortion, endangerment, and even murder) against workers in a workplace is what workplace violence is. Job-related deaths are not a rare phenomena these days, with workplace violence becoming a growing concern for employers and employees nationwide. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence every year. The reason for a person to commit workplace violence may be revenge or the intent to rob an employee. There are people who take extreme offense and develop hatred for their bosses or immediate managers, which compels them to commit violence on them. Some warning signs to watch out in the behavior of your coworkers that might signal future violence include excessive use of alcohol or drugs, unexplained absenteeism, decline in job performance, depression, suicidal comments, social withdrawal, persistent complaining, violation of company policies, mood swings, emotional responses to criticism, paranoia, etc. Irrespective of what industry or organization it is, managers and safety professionals should address workplace violence and take preventive measures to protect employees. One of the most effective ways you can prevent workplace violence in your organization is by conducting workplace safety training programs. Here’s how a course on workplace violence training can prevent violence and potential crimes to take place at your workplace: The course might help employees protect themselves. They’ll learn to not only recognize violent situations but also avoid and diffuse them. Supervisors will learn about the warning signs to look for that signal future violence. Since the program will encourage workers to report and log all incidents and threats of workplace violence, supervisors will get alert to any possible safety concerns. The program will also offer stress debriefing sessions and counseling services to help workers recover from a violence incident that took place. In addition to that, it will help them prevent something similar in future. Proper training will help reduce violent incidents, which in turn, will help save employer insurance costs and workplace injuries. With this training, you not only prevent any potential violent incidents, but also foster a better workplace with a better reputation. By delivering this course to your staff, you can help them learn practical ways of dealing with potentially violent incidents, which will prevent and minimize the threat of workplace violence.
