Every day in the United States, someone dies in an incident related to workplace violence, however, only 70 percent of U.S. businesses have a workplace violence plan – many of which are incomplete and untested. Workplace violence should be at the top of your vulnerability and threat analysis. This webinar illustrates how to mitigate this risk by properly implementing a Behavioral Risk Threat Assessment. Crisis Coach Register

People do not just snap. There are warning signs, red flags, cues, signals – but often they are not considered to be of a serious nature, so they don’t get reported. Whether violence or cyber-bullying, there are warning signs and indicators. Missing recognition of behaviors of concern or failing to listen to what is being said empowers escalation to violence. Knowing before the gun comes to work is a critical intelligence planning responsibility for every company. The earlier a problem is detected, the less impact it will have.

It should be the aim of every company to create a culture where safety from violence is a common goal of both employees and leadership. To achieve such a culture, warning signs must be recognized and understood; everyone must know how to report behaviors of concern; there must be procedures in place to investigate when there are concerns; and trained employees must know when to conduct a behavioral risk assessment and have the necessary resources in place to do so.
