Avoid Violence at Work

How to stay safe in an uncomfortable situation

Imagine… by John Lennon

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

It’s been over 25 years since John Lennon left us and even though I am ever the optimist it doesn’t appear to me that we are any closer to the world John imagined. It seems that the world is a more violent place. You simply have to turn on the television or open a newspaper to see that our world has changed.

Make. Work. Better.
