Work Violence techniques
The principal problem facing employers has been the lack of information and qualified professional assistance to reduce the potential for a violent incident. This is where our comprehensive investigation methods will help you reduce the risks created by workplace violence. We employ cutting-edge technology and proven interview techniques.
We also perform covert surveillance, forensic consulting and intervention planning, psychological and behavioral assessments, executive protection (armed and unarmed), comprehensive background investigations, workplace violence prevention and intervention training, Post-traumatic stress debriefings and site surveys and risk assessments.
We work with licensed behavioral psychologists and executive protection professionals, most of who are former federal law enforcement and are licensed & insured to carry concealed weapons.
We often liaison with local authorities to provide practical remedies. We are cautious not to violate anyone's "reasonable expectation of privacy." We pay special attention to all state and federal statutory regulations, as well as private sector liability for unlawful surveillance (civil & criminal liability).
Violence in the workplace is an extremely serious safety and health issue. Its most extreme form, homicide, is the third-leading cause of fatal occupational injury in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), there were exactly 639 workplace homicides in 2001 in the United States, out of a total of 8,786 fatal work injuries.
According to the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), about 2 million assaults and threats of violence against employees occur annually in the workplace. The most common type of workplace crime was assault with an average of 1.5 million a year.
Crimes in the Workplace
- 396,000 aggravated assaults
- 51,000 rapes and sexual assaults
- 84,000 robberies
- 1,000 homicides reported.
These figures likely fall short of the actual number of violent acts occurring in workplaces as not all acts are reported
