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.
