Why Should You Attend:

Workplace violence, “going postal,” disgruntled worker, threat assessment, zero tolerances… in the 1980s, these terms entered the workplace lexicon. Since then, workplace homicides have dropped by more than 30% but intimidation, bullying, and discrimination has increased. .In the last couple of decades, work organizations have done quite a bit to improve personal safety, yet there is still much to be done.

Further, as the economy grinds the workplace and the workforce, and as social networks grow, hostility has taken on a variety of new forms often with devastating impact. All public and private work organizations must focus attention on issue. While policies are essential, they are not enough. Plans, protocols, and programs are critical components.
