Prositions, Inc. announces the release of Getting Real About Workplace Violence. This new training program includes simple, yet effective steps to survive acts of extreme violence in the workplace, and more importantly identifies early warning signs that could prevent violence from happening in the first place. The training content in Getting Real About Workplace Violence aligns with published guidance by the American National Standards Institute, which is the standard advised by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) for best practices addressing workplace violence prevention and response. It was produced by Mark Forman and security industry veteran, Jim Sporleder.

“Life isn’t risk-free,” stated Jim Sporleder, subject matter expert and narrator of Getting Real About Workplace Violence, “But you don’t have to leave the risk of violence to chance alone. You are the key to both prevention and survival. Getting Real About Workplace Violence was carefully produced to inform, rather than overwhelm. Thinking about an active shooter is scary, and we’ve been very intentional about discussing it in a respectful way.”

This comprehensive course package covers the three most important aspects of workplace violence: awareness, prevention, and response. With 18 minutes of high-quality video and engaging training materials, the program will help every participant:

  • Define and understand what workplace violence is
  • Sharpen their awareness of potential threats of workplace violence
  • Know how to respond to these concerning behaviors
  • Recognize, understand, and respond to the potential impact of domestic violence at work
  • Remember the appropriate response options to survive an act of extreme violence

“We are excited to release this new training program because of the unique emphasis it places on workplace violence prevention. There are other programs that train about survival, but none that we’ve found have also covered early recognition and prevention,” stated Frank Russell, CEO of Prositions, Inc. “Mark and Jim have created a highly engaging and effective training program that could help save lives.”

Getting Real About Workplace Violence is available in classroom, eLearning, and micro-video formats. To request a free preview of the full program, please call (515) 864-7200 or visit:
