Workplace Violence Prevention: An Important Component Of Your Safety Program
|Date / Time:
Assaults and other violent acts are among the leading causes of work-related deaths in a number of states. And, for women, violence is the leading cause of workplace fatalities in the United States.
The main myth about workplace violence is "it can't happen here." Unfortunately, it does happen everywhere - and far too often. There are almost 1,000 violence-related workplace deaths every year in the United States, with thousands more employees injured.

- Some of the methods for identifying potential perpetrators
- Approaches you should consider for identifying the crisis warning signs that can lead to violence

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?
This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.
|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
