Workplace violence can be easily defined as violent acts, threats, and other intimidation or harassing behavior directed toward a person at work or on duty. But a simple definition belies the complexity of the prevention challenge.

The number of workplace homicides remains uncomfortably high at over 500 per year. Assaults and violent acts make up over 16% of fatal workplace injuries. The FBI reports commercial businesses like department stores, supermarkets and restaurants account for 58% of robberies. Research also shows that high risk workplaces are high risk even in low crime areas.

Do you have a method in place to identify clients or customers with a history of violence – less than half of all large establishments do. Is your staff arming itself? 

This dynamic program—directed at the security professional serving a variety of industries—will provide a proactive approach to preparing and responding to this potentially devastating threat. Workplace violence creates a hostile work environment, negatively affects employees both physically and psychologically, and impairs worker productivity.

This webinar recording  focuses on best practices for mitigating the impact of workplace violence through enterprise-wide planning and response protocols, covering operational requirements, technology, liaison, environmental design, and the importance of the Incident Command System.  The program will also cover Pre-Incident and Post-Incident protocols as they apply to a comprehensive plan.

Participants will benefit by evaluating their current plans, gleaning new ideas to address new threats, and refocus prevention efforts on the elements of a well-defined plan.

In Addition, You Will Learn…

  • Practical first steps your organization can take to mitigate an actual event
  • Protocol for initial response to potential threats that a risk assessment discloses
  • Critical components of a workplace violence plan and how it relates to the All-Hazards plan
  • How to align policy and incident reporting with your cultural environment
  • Effective strategies to encourage the reporting of threatening or disturbing behavior
  • How to establish standards of conduct and ensure compliance
  • The role of upper-level management in workplace violence prevention
  • Utilizing a shared responsibility approach to creating a safe work environment
