Workplace Violence Prevention

People arguing, destroying computers.

Violence exists all around us. It exists in our nation, in our communities, in our schools, and in our workplace. It is a very serious and a very real threat. Tragically, workplace violence has become one of the more commonplace reports that we hear on the news.

Nevertheless, we don’t expect it to happen within our own work environment. Our hope is that this is a situation we will never encounter. We believe that by participating in this seminar, it is more likely that you won’t.

This seminar will prepare you to avoid such an event by teaching you to recognize behavioral signs before they escalate to a point of violence. Furthermore, you will learn how to report your concerns in the most appropriate manner, and help you, as an employee, contribute to a safe and secure workplace.

Agenda Topics:

  • Welcome, Overview, and Workplace Violence Prevention Questionnaire
  • Explanation of Workplace Violence
  • Small Group Awareness Exercise
  • Company Policy and Procedures
  • Recognizing the Aggressive and Potentially Violent Employee
  • How to Respond and What to Expect When Reporting
  • Case Studies and Practice Documentation
  • Wrap up and Evaluation
