Developing The Zero Tolerance Policy (ZTP)
Certainly you have seen "Zero Tolerance Policies" (ZTPs) employed in the business world; maybe one's already working for you? They are often used as deterrents to drug use and harassment in the workplace and, generally, they do well as a policy backbone in these battles for drug-free and harassment-free business environments. They are not just "more paper"; they promote a concept with strong ideological teeth: "These acts are intolerable and we will do everything within our power to create a workplace free from these ugly practices and behaviors." You can apply that same purity strategy against weapons, physical altercations and threatening speech. It's a great place to start!
