Firestorm Workplace Violence ToolKit: Fast Start to a Workplace Violence Prevention Program™

Preventing violence calls for more than a routine or standard approach.

Proper planning requires that organizations PREDICT the vulnerability, PLAN the response, and PERFORM when the event occurs. Firestorm brings expertise in the development and implementation of Workplace Violence Prevention Programs, incorporating prevention, identification and response to emerging situations. Firestorm’s Workplace Violence ToolKit offers a systematic approach to engage senior leadership, identify and analyze hazards, design strict policies, procedures, and communications, and manage both predictable and unforeseen threats of workplace violence. It also provides supporting documents for testing, training and awareness.

The general principles laid out in Firestorm’s Workplace Violence ToolKit are intended to help companies take the necessary steps to minimize and prevent workplace violence, recognize acts of workplace violence, and respond appropriately, if an act of violence occurs. The ToolKit is designed to step organizations of all sizes through a logical planning process. Using Firestorm’s PREDICT. PLAN. PERFORM® process emphasized throughout the ToolKit, your company will have the opportunity to develop a culture of preparedness within its own organization.

The sections of the ToolKit make up a comprehensive, actionable Workplace Violence Prevention Program that your company can adapt to its size and type. Incorporating this information into your organization’s business continuity program, creating a separate Workplace Violence Prevention Program, or including the Workplace Violence Prevention Program in an employee handbook are some options available for consideration.
