Evaluating Potential Employee Violence: Protecting the Employer and Co-Workers

OnDemand Webinar (89 minutes)

Get the tools needed to prepare, evaluate, and intervene for potential employee violence in the workplace. Violence is an all too common risk in the American workplace. Many businesses fail to understand that hostile grievances or statements made in anger are not necessarily a prelude to violence and that an aggressive response is not always the best one. Instead, the employer should carefully evaluate the nature of the risk and thoughtfully determine the best strategy for reducing the likelihood of harm. That process also means trying to understand the motives and circumstances of those who come to attention, the wide variety of scenarios employers may encounter, and how to identify 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.
