TIGER W.I.S.E.  (Working in a Safe Environment)

Violence Prevention Starts with Community Reporting!

According to USDOL, 4.4 million workplace injuries occur annually.  And according to the U.S. Secret Service, 79% of targeted acts of violence involve early-warning threat indicators that are observable and can help prevent those incidents from happening.  Whatever your role, you will observe things that others won’t notice. It’s a matter of being intentional about what you observe and knowing when and how to share it in order to provide for our collective security.  The only one-size fits all approach to safety is to focus relentlessly on situational awareness and prevention.
