Learn the tools to prepare for a potential threat, to evaluate the risk of a violent attack, and to intervene in the most effective manner.

Get the tools needed to prepare for, evaluate, and intervene to address for potential employee violence in the workplace. Violence is an all too common risk in the American workplace, but many employers businesses fail to understand that hostile grievances or statements made in anger are not necessarily a prelude to violence. An aggressive response or hasty termination is not always the best strategy. Instead, the employer should carefully evaluate the nature of the risk and thoughtfully determine the best strategy for reducing the likelihood of harm and to reduce any unintended consequences of well-intentioned actions. That process also means trying to understand the motives and circumstances of those who come to attention, considering the wide variety of scenarios employers may encounter, and identifying those individuals who actually could pose a risk. This topic will give you the tools to prepare for a potential threat, to evaluate the risk of a violent attack, and to intervene in the most effective manner. The presentation also will help you to appreciate the employer’s legal obligations to address workplace threats, while protecting the rights of employees.
