									                 Prevention of Workplace Violence Policy
          This nonprofit is committed to the prevention of workplace violence and to the general safety
          and well-being of staff, clients, families, volunteers and visitors. Prevention of workplace
          violence will be addressed through:

PHYSICAL SECURITY
   This nonprofit will maintain a working relationship with local law enforcement
     representatives.
   This nonprofit will conduct site visits to review physical facilities.
   A system will be maintained for access to facility keys and alarm codes.
   Staff are to develop an awareness of personal safety tips by reviewing training
     information provided by the nonprofit.
   Staff are to report security hazards.

PREVENTION AND MANAGEMENT OF POTENTIAL VIOLENCE
   This nonprofit will offer training and written information to staff members.
   The Safety Risk Management Committee will track incident reports and establish a
    protocol for potentially volatile situations, once identified.
   This nonprofit will complete a periodic assessment of incidents staffers fear may
    happen, recommend solutions and recommendations for further training.

IDENTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL PERPETRATORS
   Staffers are to immediately report any incidents of potential violence or incidents of
    violence to a member of the Safety Risk Management Committee or a supervisor.
    These incidents could include threats, weapons of any kind, orders of protection,
    violent gestures, intoxication or influence of other drugs.
   This nonprofit will maintain a threat assessment team (Safety Risk Management
    Committee) with at least two members immediately convening upon report of an
    actual or potential issue of violence.
   The Safety Risk Management Committee will issue written communication to staff
    members as determined with instructions.


IDENTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL PERPETRATORS
   Staffers are to take immediate action to protect themselves and clients in our care,
    preferably to leave the area and call for help.
   Call 911 immediately.
