It is an unfortunate fact that, on average, not a week goes by without news media coverage of the latest workplace homicide. Many believe that the acts of violence in the workplace are random and unpredictable, when in reality, many cases are completely preventable. This presentation provides large and small employers with the tools they need to prevent workplace violence and keep their business safe. It includes exercises and scenarios designed to prepare people for real-life situations.

 

Objectives:

  • Explain how to visually imagine a situation of workplace violence as it might occur and mentally prepare for the actions to take to keep you and others safe.

  • Identify ways to avoid hiring people who may be prone to violence.

  • Recognize the warning signs that lead to workplace violence and how to intervene when these signs exist.

  • Discuss protocols for dealing with problem employees that will be less likely to result in confrontational behavior.

  • Identify protocols for termination less likely to result in violent behavior.
