Determine Your Level of Readiness

Firestorm’s Workplace Violence Self-Assessment offers a diagnostic tool that provides an in-depth evaluation of your organization’s readiness. The self-assessment:

  1. Measures current performance levels and assesses your readiness to prevent and respond to acts of workplace violence.
  2. Establishes a baseline, and sets up process improvement metrics to ensure the best possible return on the resources invested.
  3. Is completed in a one-hour interview.

How Firestorm’s Workplace Violence Self-Assessment Works

Description of Service:  The self-assessment is a series of fifty plus questions that are divided across the following areas of a Workplace Violence Prevention Program:

  1. Program & Framework
  2. Roles & Responsibilities
  3. Risk
  4. Prevention & Control
  5. Monitoring & Triggers
  6. Training & Awareness
  7. Reporting & Investigation
  8. Incident Response
  9. Follow-Up / Corrective Actions

Through a single group interview, Firestorm engages in a conversational series of questions with key representatives from your Workplace Violence Prevention Program.   Each question is designed to capture a specific, structured response from a multiple choice selection.

Upon completion of the interview, Firestorm produces a narrative analysis that includes a calculated Preaction Index Rating™ and a chart demonstrating overall scoring by the key dimensions, as well as an overall ranking of program “readiness”.

If needed, Firestorm will propose a strategy for your company to implement a Workplace Violence Prevention Program that will align with industry best practices.
