Workplace Violence Prevention Model Program


Communication is most effective when it involves two-way communication and the agency goals and objectives are clearly understood.

We recognize the importance of effective communication as it relates to eliminating and controlling workplace violence. Our communication process is to ensure continues flow of information relating to workplace violence, primarily between management and our workers. Affected workers are encouraged to communicate any concerns and suggestions, moreover to follow up on the action taken and or feedback. To ensure that the communication process is effective, an evaluation sheet will be used to assess our effectiveness. Our goal is to maintain checks in the Yes column.
