Workplace Violence: Addressing HR-Management Issues, Security Concerns, and More
|Date / Time:
HR professionals must be able to manage crisis situations capable of challenging even the most experienced emergency responder - from domestic disputes that carry into the workplace to dealing with unstable and potentially violent employees.
Consider these statistics:
- Workplace violence and homicides are ongoing threats for employers. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, of the 4,547 workplace injuries resulting in death in 2010, 506 were homicides.
- Nearly 2 million U.S. workers report being victimized through workplace violence each year, but many cases go unreported.
In order to mitigate the risk of violence in your workplace, it's critical for you to understand the four main types of workplace violence that could compromise employee safety as well as the legal liabilities you could face if you don't have a safety plan in place.

|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.
