"Workplace Violence Strategies for Prevention & Intervention"

October 28, 2016

Presented by Presented by Joseph Dadourian, Ed.D., C.E.A.P.

When the San Bernardino shooting happened in December 2015, it showed just how easy a violent situation can occur in the workplace. In 2013, 316 fatal, intentional workplace shootings occurred, which made up 80 percent of homicides at work. Overall, nearly 2 million workers are affected by some form of workplace violence, per year. Workplace safety has become a major concern for managers and employees alike. While workplace violence is less common than is popularly believed, incidents involving disruptions and threats are increasing. Early intervention helps prevent more serious acts. This training will help to increase understanding and awareness of risk factors in order to reduce possible incidents. Additionally, this training will provide strategies for intervention and prevention of violence.

In this interactive workshop we will discuss:

  • Differentiating workplace violence and active shooter events
  • Increasing understanding and awareness of the risk factors of violence, identifying the red flags
  • Strategies for intervention and prevention of violence
