About the Standard

pubcover-2447-sa.jpg All organizations have a responsibility to protect employees and others by taking measures to detect threats of violence, intervene through incident management, and mitigate consequences should violence erupt. Organizations that cannot manage and prevent workplace violence may experience disrupted productivity, low morale, and a public image that communicates a disregard for employee safety.

This Standard describes the implementation of a workplace violence prevention and intervention (WVPI) program and personnel within organizations who typically become involved in prevention and intervention efforts. In addition, this Standard now includes an annex which provides actionable information and guidance relative to prevention, intervention and response to incidents involving an active assailant/active shooter.
