Create a winning workplace violence risk reduction strategy: Bill Fox speaks at IOSH conference

On day one of the conference Duncan Spencer, safety manager at the John Lewis Partnership urged practitioners to put risk assessment rather than compliance at the heart of everything they do. The value and importance of risk assessment in creating a winning workplace violence risk reduction strategy was endorsed by Maybo Chairman, Bill Fox in his Spotlight Theatre session.

Bill spoke about the complex nature of the risks of workplace violence and the multi- element strategy required to deliver results. Policy, risk assessment, technology and training are all key to achieving success. Training is one of the first control measures organisations are expected to put in place to control risks and as a leader in this field, Maybo knows from experience that to be effective training needs to be fit for purpose, delivered well, transferred to the workplace, maintained and supported and based on the risks faced.
