SAFEGUARD YOUR ORGANIZATION
Prioritizing the psychological safety of your employees is vital, especially when confronted with potential workplace threats.
Here are three essential factors to consider:
Be proactive, not reactive.
Establish robust risk management prevention strategies and have verified behavioral threat specialists on standby for immediate response to any potential threats. When applicable, provide screening and training for your staff to proficiently engage support solutions, including Center for Creative Arts Therapy threat specialists.
Ensure the safety of your employees and shield your company from negligence with a workplace violence prevention program. Establish the appropriate support well in advance of concerns or actual threats.
Avoid handling violent threats in isolation—call on us for the assistance and tools needed to thoroughly assess risks and implement mitigation strategies.
Immediate action is essential if you observe signs of potential workplace violence. It's crucial to reiterate: pre-plan, identify appropriate contacts, and formulate an instant response strategy. Approach threats with the utmost seriousness, responding swiftly with proven methods and guidance from specialists.
"We experienced, on several separate accounts, patrons becoming violent towards our staff. We called the Center for Creative Arts Therapy and they provided immediate support. They not only trained our staff on effective de-escalation techniques through interactive role plays with their actors, but also created integral solutions to help the staff feel more confident in handling these challenging situations."
