What is Workplace Violent Act (WVA)?
WVA is a multifaceted stand-alone active shooter and violent act coverage created to respond to violent act events, violent act threat events, off-site employee violent events as well as stalking.

Is Your Client's Company at Risk?
A workplace violence event is the perfect storm for revenue loss & liability. All businesses are vulnerable to this exposure, whether it is a casual office setting or an establishment with late hours and frequent customers. Statistical information and recent headlines today show that these unfortunate events are increasing. Injury is an obvious potential loss, but residual community concerns may impact revenue and future growth.
Weapons include any firearm, vehicle, device, instrument, material or substance.
