Security Risk Management
SECURaGLOBE assists clients in the development and implementation of security risk management solutions for a complete workplace violence prevention program.
Performing a Threat Risk Assessment (TRA) is the first step in creating an effective Workplace Violence (WPV) Program in any organization. A workplace violence and risk assessment provides management with the following information:
- Threats that can cause injury to people within your scope of responsibility (i.e. employees, visitors, clients)
- The different ways that WPV incidents can happen
- A prioritized list of the WPV risks facing your organization
- A factual starting point to create your WPV program
Where do you start? Many organizations start their Workplace Violence (WPV) Program by writing policies and procedures. These are important, but stakeholders and governments expect a thorough assessment of the specific risks of violence in your workplace. Our certified security risk management experts can perform a comprehensive assessment of your operations to identify threats and vulnerabilities for WPV. The facts obtained in this objective examination form the foundation of your program.
Recognizing the signs of WPV and having an effective reporting mechanism to management is a critical program component. Analysis of WPV incidents show that in almost every case there were clear signs of a brewing problem that were not recognized or reported within the organization. Our security risk management experts can train your staff how to identify key violence indicators and help to create your reporting methods that will withstand the most critical scrutiny.
Mitigation is about knowing and avoiding unnecessary risks where possible. Your WPV assessment will identify the risks facing your organization so you can make informed decisions and take cost effective action to:
- Prevent incidents from occurring
- Create effective policies and procedures
- Document and analyze incidents to proactively address changing threats
- Train your staff to recognize, report and manage incidents
- Comply to legislation and survive court challenges
Despite the best program, not all WPV risks can be avoided. Effectively managing incidents is vital to the safety & security of everyone in your organization. SECURaGLOBE security risk management experts can work with your management team to correctly interpret the reported signs of violence and deliver appropriate responses to workplace threats.
