Workplace Conflict Resolution Training

Workplace Conflict Resolution and De-escalation Strategies Training Program

Act First Safety’s Workplace Conflict Resolution and De-escalation Strategies training program empowers workers, supervisors and managers to recognize and resolve work-related conflict.  In addition, we will train you how to create an environment that reduces the potential of conflict before it happens.

Our training has been designed specifically to address conflict in the workplace.  Professional safety instructors use proven training techniques and demonstrations to clearly show you how to de-escalate conflict and turn negative situations into positive outcomes.

Do You Need Conflict Resolution Training?

Every workplace experiences conflict.  It may result from differences between co-workers, disrespect, harassment, bullying, frustration, personality differences, mental health issues, angry customers/clients or many other reasons.

Whatever the cause, conflict can cause serious harm. It can damage productivity, working relationships, customer service and even your corporate image.  In its most extreme, conflict can lead to violence and personal injury.
