Workplace Violence Prevention & Response Program

Helplines & resources

Workplace Violence Prevention and Response (WVPR) works to establish a culture of professionalism and respect through violence prevention and response; education and training; victim support; reporting procedures and appropriate accountability that enhances the safety and well-being of all NOAA employees, affiliates, and visitors.


“Whether in or out of the office, the entire NOAA workforce must actively contribute to a culture where sexual assault and sexual harassment of any kind is not tolerated, perpetrators are held accountable, and survivors are supported.”
