Workplace Violence Response
Protect Your Company from Workplace Threats
Although many steps have been taken to curb the amount of workplace violence
incidents, it remains a serious and expensive problem for businesses across
the country. In fact, the annual cost of workplace violence is estimated
at $4 billion each year. Of course, the problems caused by workplace violence
aren’t limited to the economic impact, as it can lead to employees
feeling unsafe at work.
If you work in human resources, you should have our phone number available
at all times. Most workplace violence incidents are unexpected, so you
need a security company who can respond at a moment’s notice. At
ATHOS, we employ off-duty law enforcement officers, rather than career
security guards. This means that when you call ATHOS, the responders have
superior training to de-escalate the confrontation, and can also arrest
the person if necessary.

to make the arrest themselves.

response from your security company. Only law enforcement officers like
