HOW? Building Robust, Agile, Proactive Workplace Violence Prevention Awareness…


What You Can Expect!  Here is what one Client said about their satisfaction. 

“As the Security Director of one of the major pharmaceutical companies in the world, we had the option to hire virtually any Security Consulting firm in the U.S. to assist us in the development of a Workplace Violence Prevention and Response Program. We interviewed many firms both large and small but settled on Nater Associates. This was primarily due to the “personal” touch offered by Nater Associates’ President, Mr. Felix Nater.”  Marvin Washington, Security Director, U.S. sites.

“In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, I undertook with my management team to ensure that in the highly unlikely but potentially catastrophic incident of an active shooter at my workplace, that my 120 employees would be protected. Problem: we had no idea how to go about it. We found Felix’s resume and asked him to come talk to us. Among the consultants we sourced at the time, Felix stood out for his quick attention, passion about the subject, and for the depth of his knowledge”.  Marie Acacia, Human Resource Manager, Alere, Inc.
