Violence in the Workplace


Violence in our workplaces is an emerging reality and one requiring our increased attention. According to an estimate from OSHA, nearly 2 million workers a year are affected by some form of workplace violence. Unfortunately, acts of Extreme Violence in the workplace are also on the rise. The FBI has recently concluded that Active Shooter Events have tripled since 2009.

This program will present some foundational concepts related to the prevention of workplace violence, and how to respond if an act of Extreme Violence were to occur in the workplace.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define workplace violence
  2. Know two questions to sharpen awareness to potential workplace violence
  3. Know how to respond to concerning behavior
  4. Recognize and understand the potential impact of Domestic Violence on the workplace and how to respond
  5. Know the response options available if caught inside an act of Extreme Violence.
