Fall 2015 

With recent workplace violence incidents dominating the news, we are all reminded once again that preventing workplace violence is everyone's responsibility.

For over 20 years, the BCI team has helped employers keep their workers safe through prevention, intervention and training programs. As we enter our third decade, we are even more committed to that mission.

We've just launched Workplace Violence Prevention, Recognition and Response. This online training program is an affordable introduction to violence prevention for all employees. We've also brought on new team members to serve our expanding client base.

Let us help you keep your workplace safe. We'll build a program that will fit your needs and budget. It's never been more critical! 

 Best regards,

Jaimee Pittman, President

Sometimes organizations (like in the case of the TV station shooting in Virginia) don't know what they don't know. As with anything, you need the correct professional skill set when dealing with a problematic, aggressive, and/or threatening individual. Below is an article from SHRM.org on angrry, aggressive behavior like that displayed by Vester Flanagan. EAPs May Not Be Best Route for Angry, Threatening Employees      

Introducing Online Training for Workplace Violence Prevention

Anywhere, Any Time, and on Any Device!
Now there's an easy-to-implement, affordable way to give all your employees the tools and information they need to recognize threats and help prevent violence in the workplace.
Baron Center has developed an interactive, online training program, Workplace Violence Prevention: Recognition & Response, designed to meet the needs of today's busy people.  
Taught by a former chief of police, this 45-minute program will empower your employees with the knowledge to:
  • Recognize the many different types of workplace violence.
  • Understand their own responsibility in helping prevent violence in the workplace.
  • Identify specific behaviors that constitute workplace aggression.
  • Recognize the warning signs of a potential threat.
  • Understand the importance of reporting any unusual, threatening or intimidating behavior immediately.
  • Identify options for personal protection in an "active shooter" situation.
Contact us today for a demonstration of 
Workplace Violence Prevention: Recognition & Response. You'll rest easier knowing you have this professional safety training in place!
