    Manager’s Role in Preventing Workplace Violence Brief Description Focuses on identifying the seven keys steps in implementing a comprehensive violence in the workplace prevention effort and defining manager' role in overall implementation of the program. Target Audience Executives, managers who manage other managers and supervisors,...
As a leader in the area of occupational violence prevention, the Institute serves as a center for research, consulting, training, and communication. Our mission is to educate employers, unions and employees about the growing threat of violence in the workplace and how to effectively deal with it. We focus on preventative efforts and prepare clients to respond appropriately should an incident of violence occur. The statement "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" was never truer when considering that an average of approximately 1,000 people annually have been killed on the job since 1990, up from an average of 750 in the 8O's.

The NIX Model for Preventing Workplace ViolenceTM provides a framework for our work, which is a comprehensive approach to addressing occupational violence. The Institute's training is practical, experiential, and targeted at application on the job. We help supervisors and managers to recognize the early warning signs so they can intervene early and reduce the likelihood of violence. We also help them know exactly what to do should an incident of workplace violence actually occur. Being prepared is your best defense.

Our business practice of consulting and training is built on the premise that in order for any structure to stand, it must be built on a solid foundation. One critical component of every business foundation is having people who are fully competent in executing the requirements of their positions. This requires well-developed and ongoing training. We build this assumption into all our work, and take great pride in our ability to develop and implement practical solutions to problems.

The Institute is composed of a consortium of professionals with specialized expertise in the multiple disciplines impacting workplace violence (e.g., security, behavioral psychology, safety, human resources, law, anger management, conflict resolution, etc). Each consultant has experience working with companies of a variety of sizes and has held significant positions during their career.
