Workplace Violence Through the Five Phases of Emergency Management

March 3, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST


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.
