ASIS WVPI-2020 provides an overview of policies, processes, and protocols that organizations can adopt in order to help identify and prevent threatening behavior and violence affecting the workplace. Specifically, it proposes ways in which an organization can better detect, investigate, manage, and, whenever possible, resolve behavior that has generated concerns for workplace safety from violence. The Standard also helps organizations better address and resolve threats and violence which have occurred.
