Workplace Violence Polices Help Prevent Problems
Incorporating Lone Working & Personal Safety
Purpose of having a folder containing your workplace violence policies is to ensure that everyone understands the boundaries and procedures that is needed to be carried out in the event of any forms of abuse, threats and assaults.
We have designed and incorporated a policy that can be used by any size of organisation and has all the relevant areas needed to be realistic and relevant.
Within your Workplace Violence Policies should be the key aspects of the following:
- Workplace Violence
- Lone Working
- Personal Safety
- Reporting Procedures
We at Quell have a vast amount of experience in this area and have worked in partnership with various specialists inclusive of a range of small businesses to large public and private organisations, in ensuring that not only the staff are protected but the organisation is also protected from prosecution, that could result in high value fines or having to decrease the amount of staff within the organisation.
Our approach is not to enter any organisation and start demanding massive changes to already in place systems, but to evaluate what is actually required through the risk assessment. An example would be that we would ensure the policy is adequate and directed to their specific risks, inclusive of ensuring the staff get the required level of training.
What we offer at Quell is a different but professional approach to assisting every sector in designing and implementing a professional policy that will stand up in a legal aspect , and is constantly monitored for changes and updates.
We offer any size of organisation a non obligation meeting, were we would discuss your requirements and also the level of policy, training and support required to protect both the organisation and members of staff.
Once you have agreed with our findings we will then follow the stages listed below:
- Risk Assess the roles within your organisation.
- You receive a policy directed towards your organisation in a binder that can be used for inspections or reviews which also contains appendices for categorising staff and incidents.
- A training plan for all members of staff, including the different levels of skills required as per the level of threat the member of staff faces.
- The person selected to manage the policy will be invited to attend a 3hr workshop staged at different points throughout the year to speak to a Safety Lawyer who specialises in this specific subject.
- On going support throughout the process, inclusive of subscribing to our review of changes to staff and incidents.
We have written articles on this subject of policies, and below is links to the various blogs:
