Title:

Workplace Violence Prevention: Strategies To Address Employee Safety And Reduce Damaging Litigation

SKU:WC-1023751
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

Each year, more than 400 people die as a result of workplace violence in the United States. This is a growing problem that affects an employee’s safety, quality of life and business productivity.

Although homicides are widely publicized, they make up a relatively small portion of incidents. Acts of workplace violence, such as verbal, physical, sexual assaults, domestic violence, and threats often go unreported and unnoticed. However, these cases can greatly impact the daily lives of workers by damaging their trust in the company and their productivity.

When violence in the workplace turns high profile, employee safety is put at risk, and there’s an often an added layer of harm which affects employee trust and the company’s reputation. Negative publicity can lead to a significant loss of business, which can adversely affect shareholder and investor relations, leading to a problem affecting many more people than those directly targeted by the acts of workplace violence alone.

Join us for an in-depth webinar led by Attorney Michelle Lee Flores, who will explain the types of conduct, both obvious and more opaque, that constitute workplace violence generally and how to minimize threats by addressing conduct-based issues or other “red flags” before they lead to violence.

You’ll learn:

  • How to apply working definitions that are helpful for understanding and framing workplace violence including both physical and non-physical, verbal abuse and assault
  • How to identify key causes or origins of violence occurring in the workplace
  • Why OSHA generally issues workplace violence citations and penalties—so you can avoid making the same mistakes the organizations it has cited
  • Situational factors that could put a workplace at particular risk of violence and examples of workplace settings that could be most vulnerable
  • An employer’s legal requirements and general responsibilities when developing a comprehensive program to address potential workplace violence
  • Who within your organization should have a part in developing a workplace violence prevention policy
  • Tips for evaluating the success of your workplace violence prevention program
  • Questions to ask to evaluate whether workplace violence could be more likely to erupt at your facility
  • Best practices for training the workforce to detect signs of violence in the workplace, and what they should do to protect themselves

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.

The live 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.
