How Training Can Help Prevent Workplace Violence

Workplace violence prevention requires managing psychosocial hazards in the workplace. These hazards, whether physical or psychological, can impact anyone, including employees, students, volunteers, interns, or apprentices.

Workplace violence comes in various forms: bullying, physical harassment, verbal abuse, or other forms of workplace conflict.

No one is immune from workplace violence. But the good news is, it can be handled through occupational violence and aggression training.


For clarity, workplace violence could be things like:

  • Verbal Aggression
  • Physical Aggression in many forms, from hitting, spitting, weapons.
  • Difficult Behaviour like dealing with Passive Aggressiveness, idle threats, bullying.
  • Sexual harassment of all types

You probably agree that bullying and violence is not healthy in the work environment. And if it is not adequately managed, it could negatively impact your staff.

Workplace violence makes the target employee less active, stressed and causes trust issues in the work environment. And if such an atmosphere continues, the employee will likely experience mental health problems such as anxiety and sleep issues.


However, at Resolution Education, we believe real-life training and workplace policies can help workplace violence prevention.

First off, risk factors should be identified by the employer. After that, steps can be taken further by establishing a zero-tolerance policy and procedure in the workplace for any violence or bullying whatsoever.

Resolution Education conduct tailor-made real-life training in a safe, fun environment. Building these skills will give your employees more confidence and create a more harmonious work environment. As well as reduce occupational aggression and violence.

Our qualified trainers will ensure your team are supported back in the workplace as well with all organisations participating in a customised training program receiving a sample Dealing with Aggressive Situations Policy and Procedures.
