Overview : Workplace violence is the number one cause of workplace fatalities for women. Eighteen thousand weekly workplace assaults cause 500,000 employees to lose 1,751,000 days of work annually, with a loss of $55 million in wages (3.5 days per incident); in fact, 18% of all crimes occur in the workplace.

Although workplace violence might seem to happen at random, there are often patterns and warning signs that indicate when violent reactions are imminent. Have your managers and supervisors been trained to recognizing those patterns and their associated warning signs? Do they know how to take preventive measures to keep violence from occurring in your workplace? In this program, you will learn about the causes and warning signs of violence in the workplace, the employer's legal duty to provide a safe workplace, responses to violent or threatening behavior at work, and more.
