Leading Workplace Violence Prevention Consulting Firm Acquires the Leading Workplace Violence Prevention Magazine

LAKE FOREST, CA — December 14, 2010 — The National Institute for Prevention of Workplace Violence, Inc. today announced that it has acquired the reigning king of publications focused on workplace violence prevention, The Workplace Violence Prevention Reporter. The Workplace Violence Prevention Reporter has been at the forefront of reporting information about workplace violence prevention for more than ten years and many Security, Safety, Risk Management and Human Resource Management professionals grew to rely on it for timely information on workplace violence.

W. Barry Nixon, Founder and Executive Director of  The National Institute for Prevention of Workplace Violence, Inc. stated, ” We are overjoyed at being able to add a publication of the caliber of The Workplace Violence Prevention Reporter, to our growing collection of publications that are collectively focused on eradicating workplace violence from all places of employment.” The Workplace Violence Prevention Reporter will be combined with our highly acclaimed publication `The Special Report on Workplace Violence in the Health Care Industry’ and will be reborn as The Workplace Violence Prevention Report.

We think the timing is now right to expand reporting and communications about workplace violence prevention. In 2009 Security Director News survey results reported that 49% of their readers placed workplace violence as their #1 concern and high profile incidents like Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Ft. Hood, etc. show us the continued danger. We know that workplace violence prevention is a critical component of Security and Human Resource Managers job and we intend to provide them with the most current information, research, tools and practices to aid them in the battle against this scourge that continues to deprive people of safe work environments.

The National Institute for Prevention of Workplace Violence, Inc. is one of the premiers consulting and training firms specializing in helping public and private organizations address the troubling issue of workplace violence. W. Barry Nixon is a recognized worldwide expert on workplace violence. He served on the Workplace Violence Task Force that created the Workplace Violence Guidelines for the prestigious association, ASIS International. He is currently representing the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) on the Joint Committee with ASIS International to create the first Standard for Workplace Violence Prevention. He also serves on the SHRM Expert Panel for Occupational Health, Safety and Security and was named one of the Most Influential People in Security by Security Magazine.

As the Publisher of the new magazine Mr. Nixon shared that “the new magazine will be a perfect compliment to our award winning website — www.Workplaceviolence911.com to create a complete set of information tools for Security and Human Resource professionals to stay abreast of the latest information about workplace violence.” Nixon further stated that “he believes the new magazine nicely compliments their growing array of publications focused on addressing different aspects of workplace violence. Their other publications include The Employment Screening Journal (targeted at hiring professionals to give them the most current techniques for screening out potentially problematic employees and avoiding bad hires), The Background Buzz (targeted at professional background screeners to keep them abreast of the latest in background screening).

Similar to their industry leading web site, www.Workplaceviolence911.com[, The Workplace Violence Prevention Report will be an open source of information including information from all sources not just the National Institute’s own proprietary information. The goal is to provide the widest possible amount of relevant information to businesses to help them combat workplace violence.
