We have state-of-the-art production equipment, animation technology, and the creative talent to produce training videos that meet client-specific needs, featuring the client’s company and personnel, if desired.

Workplace Violence Training

Training is key to a successful workplace violence program, as has been noted by the latest ASIS/SHRM ANSI standard. We work with many types of organizations to deliver accessible, actionable employee training covering the following general areas:

  • Formulation of the risk assessment process

  • Behaviors that need to be identified and acted upon
  • Identification of key variables that can act as inhibitors or triggers to violent behavior
  • Accurate differentiation between high and low risk behaviors
  • Importance of understanding environmental influences
  • When and whom to call for outside assistance

Training content, methodology, and materials are all flexible to fit the organization’s preferences within the framework of regulatory expectations.
