More than two million American workers report being victimized by workplace violence which costs employers more than $120 billion a year. Our session will review workplace violence through the lens of all five phases of emergency management developing a workplace violence prevention program. For mitigation, employers need to identify risk factors for employees who may offend. For prevention, employers create a workplace zero tolerance policy for bad behavior that could lead to violence. For preparedness, training and exercises gives muscle memory for employees to know what to do should they need to "run, hide, or fight". The business continuity functions of recovery should focus on recovery issues such as crisis communications and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
- How to view workplace violence through the lens of all five phases of emergency management in order to develop a robust workplace violence prevention program.
- What are the employer and employee risk factors and action that could lead to a violent situation?
- Case studies of employers whose actions or inactions lead to workplace events.
