Incidents of workplace violence are on the rise. Employees make threats or do harm to co-workers or property. The results are sometimes catastrophic, yet often they could have been prevented.
Threats of violence require prompt, sometimes immediate, action, but many organizations aren't prepared. They don't have in place policies, training, or understanding of overall practices and processes that can prevent, identify, act and deal with the aftermath and crucial follow-up issues.
We'll review legal and practical issues related to workplace violence, including the ADA Direct Threat standards, and we'll address policies and best practices so that your organization can act when there is a threat to the workplace. Be prepared. Have the right policies and practices to identify issues and prevent violence.
