Police, Security and Outside Services provides training to all MGH employees that is usually free of charge. We pride ourselves in providing a wide array of training programs to help keep the hospital a safe, secure and comfortable place to be. 

Our proactive and innovative training is geared toward empowering every MGH employee to react and assist in carrying out the hospital’s mission in any incident or situation that arises. We train employees to effectively handle escalating violence and threatening situations, to recognize suspicious behavior, and to report these incidents appropriately. 

We have trained over 8,000 employees in at least one of our four major educational programs:

  • Management of Aggressive Behavior® (MOAB)
  • Security Awareness and Vigilance for Everyone (SAVE) ™ - accessible via HealthStream
  • Workplace Conflict/Workplace Violence - accessible via HealthStream
