The Five Steps to Building your Workplace Violence Program




Violence prevention planStep 4 – Implementing the program – communication, marketing and education

To ensure all staff are aware of your Workplace Violence Prevention Program, develop a detailed plan for implementing the workplace violence prevention program that includes marketing and communication strategies.

Staff must also be trained on measures and procedures to protect themselves. Training should be mandatory and incorporated into the orientation and regular (annual) education programs. The design of the educational and training programs should reflect the specific needs of the staff. Information from the needs assessment phase of the program development strategy should be incorporated into the design of the education and training programs. All education and training programs must be evaluated in terms of employee comprehension, quality of learning, change in practice or behaviours, and organizational performance.2
