Personal Safety & Security Awareness for Men & Women in the Workplace

OSHA guidelines for workplace violence prevention aside, the reality is that the personal safety of your employees goes well beyond their time spent at work. Situational awareness is always key.

Criminals will strike when it best suits them. This may include targeting your employees coming and going from the office, in elevators, seldom used stairwells or quiet parking structures.  They may be victimized  on their way to or from a clients office, followed from a rental car lot at the airport or face threats while  going about any number of non work related activities.

Employees who telecommute become complacent with regard to home safety making themselves “softer targets”  and need to be trained in best safety and security practices when working from home.

This training provides your employees with the foundation of a “Safety Mindset” which is built on gaining knowledge of crime as a process, improving  awareness of surroundings, providing effective crime avoidance strategies and reinforcing the importance of obeying intuition. (This approach to personal safety is also known as situational awareness or, SA)
