Surviving an Incident of Violence at Work: Protecting Yourself and Your Employees!


Program Overview:

Successfully surviving a sudden incident of violence is 90% mental and 10% physical skill. This course focuses on the 90% mental, while concurrently providing skills to survive the 10% physical - as a last resort.

This course provides a solid foundation for gaining the skills necessary to prepare for “making good decisions in fractions of a second.” Attendees will learn the foundational skills to be able to develop an overall violence at work plan that is based on and guided by good, solid policy. The instructors will teach highly critical and general skills in mastering the decision making process by providing participants with a solid understanding of both themselves and their opponent - “the bad guy”.

In a business environment, the most important factors are recognizing signs of violence in advance and becoming proficient in de-escalation techniques and skills. We will also cover Practical Personal Defense designed to keep your employees safe while away from work via preparation for an incident of violence primarily through awareness, avoidance, and mental strength building. This material includes 100% practical, highly effective tactics and techniques, which are not dependent on what your opponent does. Finally, we will prepare you in the event of the worst case of a real violent encounter. This part is all about tactics!

Learning Objectives -This program will show you how to:

  •  Walk away with a mindset and thought process that will keep them safe both at work and home
  •  Learn and review tactics for developing a plan that is based on and guided by solid and consistent policy
  • Resources to help you prepare your employees and give them the absolute best chance to successfully navigate an incident
