Course description

Workplace Violence Prevention

The upheaval caused by 9-11, uncertainty in the marketplace, wars that don’t seem to end, terrorism, business malfeasances, constant uncertainty, constant change, greater emphasis on speed and the pressure to do more work with fewer people, has greatly increased your employees’ level of stress, tension, and frustration.

The fact that some employees lack the emotional skills or temperament to manage this pressure has resulted in a sharp increase in workplace violence – acts, threats, bullying, anger, sabotage, and absenteeism. This increased potential for confrontation has placed new demands on supervisors, many of whom are unprepared to handle such demands.

This course prepares you to identify symptoms and causes of workplace violence and to take corrective actions. You learn the warning signs of potential violence and defuse anger and conflict.
