Webinar Description and Audience
Incidents of workplace violence are on the rise. Employees make threats or do harm to co-workers or property. The results are sometimes catastrophic. Often they could have been prevented. Threats of violence requires prompt, sometimes immediate, action, yet many organizations are not prepared for these situations. They do not have in place the policies, training, or understanding of the overall practices and processes which can be used to prevent, identify, act to dismiss the occurrences, or act to stop escalation, and deal with the aftermath and follow-up issues
This is not a program about what to do in an active crisis situation. This session covers important considerations designed to help keep you from getting to such a situation. This program will review legal and practical issues related to workplace violence, including the ADA direct threat standards, and will address policies and best practices so that your organization can be proactive, properly and legally identify and curtail potential violence, and meet your Duty of Care to employees, customers and the public. Be prepared. Have the right policies and practices to identify issues and prevent violence.
