The World is Changing. Is Your Workplace Prepared?

Let’s face it, the world can be a volatile place and sometimes the issues of personal life can spill over into one’s workplace. In today’s professional world, they can quickly turn into workplace violence, something that has now become a serious concern for business owners everywhere. Building a successful business means you have to create a safe and secure environment for your employees and that includes taking steps to address all kinds of potential threats, including workplace violence.

Workplace violence is not just limited to physical altercations. It could be a disgruntled employee going through a difficult termination or an unhappy client trying to escalate a dispute.

What is Workplace Violence: A Real and Present Danger

Let’s face it, nobody wants to think about the possibility of violence at work. But the truth is, it’s a reality that we just can’t ignore in our business. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) defines the workplace violence as any threat or act of physical violence, harassment, intimidation or other disruptive behavior that happens at the work site. This can include anything from a verbally abusive employee to an active shooter situation. And tragically, sometimes there is no specific target and the goal is simply to harm and create chaos.

At OPSInc, our team thoroughly understands how critical such an issue can be. That’s why have always shown our utmost commitment to the security industry by helping you keep your workplace and your people safe. We’ve built a very strong reputation with the top-tier security we always provide and we never stop investing in their ongoing training.

With us, you can breathe easier and know that you have the best possible protection.

How Serious is Workplace Violence?

Sadly, by the looks of it, workplace violence isn’t going away anytime soon. We have seen that it remains a major concern for business owners and everyone involved. The trends have been pretty clear during the last few decades which shows that this is an actual threat that demands our attention. There has been a steady rise in mass shootings in recent years which forces us to create foolproof prevention plans to protect employees, staff and your business assets.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries has reported an overall decrease in workplace violence in 2017 but even then the numbers are still pretty bleak. Out of 5,147 fatal workplace injuries that year, a staggering 807 were due to violence. Even more heartbreaking, 458 of those were workplace homicides.

The takeaway here is clear for us all: workplace violence is a very real danger. And it is crucial for you to take steps to prevent at all costs to run your business smoothly.

The Ripple Effect: How Workplace Violence Impacts Your Business

Workplace violence is as real as it can get and is no hoax. It can impact your entire company, executives, employees, clients and even your community standing. Your reputation which you have built over years with hard work can go up in smoke in an instant. And the economic problem? It will be significant.

A Lower & Associates research paints this picture:

  • Negligence lawsuits cost an average of $2 million.
  • Workplace homicides cost between $250,000 and $1 million.
  • Out-of-court settlements average cost is $500,000.

But the financial strain goes deeper:

  • Productivity goes down by 50% in the weeks that follow such an incident.
  • Employee turnover increases by up to 20-40%.

A Visible Deterrence: The Power of Professional Security Guards

Humans are unpredictable, so one can completely eliminate the risk of workplace violence and that’s a fact. But you can create a far safer environment than you have right now. Highly trained security personnel can mean the difference between a normal workday and a tragedy.

Think of it this way: security guards are the first step of security for your business. They’re the first point of contact who often interact with employees, customers, vendors and visitors directly when they enter your premises. This daily interaction helps them to spot potential risks and suspicious behaviors that may not be noticed otherwise.

A professional security guard can act as a powerful and visible deterrent. They will discourage a potential offender to stay put and not attempt a violent act in their presence. Security guards keep the well being of your employees and clients above everything else so you can have a peace of mind that your business and its operations are secure and free from any risks of workplace violence.
