Hostile behaviour management

Hostile behaviour, verbal aggression and physical aggression are threats that significantly raise stress levels for employees and personnel. Disgruntled clients, aggressive individuals, protest groups, individuals with behavioural or psychopathological problems, all give rise to situations that must be resolved while keeping personnel safe and avoiding business disruption.
