Workplace violence is a risk every business faces, and an exposure for which many are not prepared. As national standards, agency regulations, and professional guidelines evolve, more and more organizations are turning to U.S. Security Associates (USA) for comprehensive, customized workplace violence solutions, with a team of the industry’s leading experts on permanent standby, just in case.
USA’s Consulting, Investigations and International (CI&I) Division provides workplace violence solutions for Fortune 500 corporations, higher education institutions, healthcare organizations, and other clients throughout the United States and around the globe. Our workplace violence consultants routinely travel to client sites to perform assessments, develop written programs, present training, conduct investigations, and lead direct interventions. We are consulted hundreds of times every year on threats of potential violence.
CI&I has internal resources and expertise in every aspect of developing a comprehensive workplace violence prevention program:
Through a cost-effective approach capitalizing on existing resources, our consultants develop OSHA-compliant workplace violence programs per ASIS-SHRM and other regulatory standards and guidelines. Our programs are inclusive of customized training curricula, procedural material, and documentation formats, all engineered by a team of experts parlaying decades of threat assessment and management experience into comprehensive, client-specific solutions.
Our consultants have each element of this work “down to a science,” enabling us to accomplish more in fewer billable hours. We are adept at adapting and re-engineering content from existing materials and sources. Because we are called upon daily to assess and manage real, live threats, our training is fresh, current and in tune with the scenarios that are unfolding in today’s workplaces. Perhaps most importantly, our accumulated experiences as seasoned threat assessment/ threat management professionals give us the strength of our convictions — you can trust USA’s Consulting, Investigations and International Division for decisive judgments and sound advice when the stakes are high.
Run/Hide/Fight – Surviving an Active Shooter Event is an example of the type of training that our consulting and investigations professionals deliver for clients. We custom-design the training to address the specific needs of the client organization. CAUTION: Run/Hide/Fight is a simulation of an active shooter event in a workplace; some viewers may find the content graphic or disturbing.
