The Paziotopoulos Group begins each project with a needs assessment that outlines the disparities and opportunities in an effective workplace violence prevention and intervention program, tailoring the program to fit the distinctive needs of each business or college.
Workplace Violence Needs Assessment/Risk Assessment
Includes a detailed on-site review of existing policies, programs and procedures, conducted by some of the top experts in the fields of workplace violence prevention and intimate partner violence and stalking. Meetings with key stakeholders, a review of the physical plant, and observations of the “corporate culture” are all part of the needs assessment step.
Workplace Violence Policy Development & Implementation
The development of a new or updated ASIS/SHRM compliant policy that contains a detailed incident management process, emergency and threat response protocols, the role of external experts and law enforcement, specific strategies for high-risk workplaces, post-incident management protocols, appropriate record-keeping, and the integration of intimate partner violence prevention strategies.
Threat Management Team Development
The establishment of an interdisciplinary threat management team that will review and respond to violent incidents or reports of troubling behavior, evaluate potential risks, and establish appropriate incident notification protocols.
Threat Management Team Training
The Paziotopoulos Group provides custom training for the threat management team which includes identification criterion, reporting structures, and warning signs/indicators of potential violent behavior.
Management Team Training
Specialized training for supervisors and managers that are not part of the threat management team. Included in this training would be the identification of potential threats, handling complaints or concerns, and initial emergency response.
