Master Guide to Workplace Violence: Threats, Prevention, Policies & Best Practices includes the latest research and information on what is known about workplace violence and the implications this information has for violence prevention. You'll get practical tips and advice on the best ways to prevent threats and handle your workplace violence issues. New case law, crime data, and scientific research have yielded fresh ammunition with which to fight workplace violence, including critical lessons on how to train, where to target prevention, and overlooked areas of risk.

This 350-page report will help you:

  • adapt to changes in the law
  • implement new tools, strategies, and knowledge
  • incorporate lessons learned to strengthen existing violence prevention efforts

It describes new scientific research and recent case studies that reflect workplace violence in the real world—helping firms transition from understanding what’s the right thing to do to getting it done—and demonstrating the real consequences of failure to implement such programs. This report also details the full range of fundamental elements on which a violence prevention program must build to be a living, breathing part of the organization—one that ensures ongoing commitment and continuous improvement, specifically: 

  • primary causes of workplace violence, identifies trends in each, and details recommendations for prevention
  • elements of a successful workplace violence prevention program, including: baseline program elements, security and personnel strategies that can aid in preventing all forms of violence, and how to structure prevention to have an effective mechanism for reacting to fluctuations in risk and emerging threats
  • factors that can contribute to incidents of workplace violence, alongside advice for managing them and minimizing the threat they pose
  • legal issues, with a special focus on recent changes in the legal and regulatory environment and what is on the horizon
  • a closer look at the costs of workplace violence in order for companies to justify violence prevention initiatives, as well as advice for extracting maximum value from violence prevention efforts

This information-packed guide also provides you with a template if you're looking to get a program off the ground, or if you want to improve your handling of a single issue, such as the inclusion of bullying within the violence prevention program, peacefully resolving conflicts between employees, reducing assaults in parking areas, or pushing out alerts to workers in a crisis event.

But that's not all! You'll also get the most current benchmark data available on workplace violence programs and incident trends. Data from IOFM’s new survey—broken down by company size, industry, and public accessibility—is detailed throughout the report. The information is critical for navigating difficult questions regarding workplace violence, putting threats in perspective, and showing an organization how its response to different risks stacks up against those of other companies—a critical question should a tragic incident cause a plaintiff’s attorney to take aim at a company’s prevention efforts
