Unfortunately safety in the workplace is not always guaranteed. Even if you know your staff and feel very safe at the office you never know what might happen. In some cases trauma in the workplace has been caused by total strangers or old affiliates. While it is not very common it is very important to make sure your employees feel safe.
Here are 7 steps you can take into consideration when implementing a safer work environment:
1. Come to terms with reality.
2. Be aware and teach awareness.
3. Get expert advice.
4. Develop a plan.
5. Do the drill.
6. Find leaders within your team.
7. Consider providing a basic self-defense and safety course to all employees.
You may truly believe that this would never happen at your place of work but the truth is, it can happen anywhere.
