    Violence in the Workplace: Presented by Peter Rudy

    In recent years, incidents of workplace violence have become increasingly prevalent in both the private and public sectors. No workplace can consider itself immune.  Responsible organizations must take proactive steps to formally establish a position against violence in the workplace and are also making efforts to maintain a work environment free from intimidation, threats, and violent acts.

    1.     How to establish a Workplace Violence Prevention Program that meets the needs of your workplace. 

    2.     As part of the Program, develop a Threat Assessment Team (TAT) in your company, which is tasked with:

    • Outlining the organization's policy against workplace violence
    • Defining disruptive behaviors
    • identifying proper procedure for reporting any direct or indirect threats and/or any behaviors that are perceived as intimidating, violent, or otherwise in violation of the organization's workplace violence policy. 

    3.      Additionally, a Workplace Violence Prevention Program includes the development of a manual, which is available to all employees and includes, in part:

    • The organization's Workplace Violence Prevention Policy
    • An outline of the responsibilities of all members of the organization
    • Summary of the warning signs of potentially disruptive behaviors
    • The protocol for reporting disruptive behaviors
    • Steps the TAT will take once they have been activated

    This event is approved for 1.5 HRCI AND SHRM credits
