Workplace Violence Manual


by: Dana Turner

Statistically, one in every four Americans will become the victim of a violent act during his/her lifetime, either at home, at work -- or any place in between. And one in every six violent crimes occurs in the workplace. The likelihood of a person becoming a victim of a violent crime is present in the commonly related crimes of burglary, sexual assault, robbery, extortion, hostage events, domestic violence, terrorist attacks and "random" assaults. Workplace violence -- and its accompanying personal liability issues -- has become one of the most significant concerns for directors and executives.

Many states and insurance carriers require employers to develop and maintain a comprehensive Workplace Safety Program that includes a workplace violence prevention component and a Crisis Management Plan. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration also requires that employers maintain a safe and secure environment for employees to work and for customers to do business -- and determining the effectiveness of your company's Workplace Safety Program is a high priority for OSHA examiners.

A professional reputation takes years to acquire, moments to destroy and an eternity to rebuild. Inappropriate and ineffective operational procedures used by your employees -- particularly concerning safety issues -- may destroy an institution's image. Losses of this type are among the easiest losses to prevent if you know how.

The Workplace Violence Manual is written especially for those people who are responsible for any institution's safety and soundness: compliance officers, security officers, auditors, training managers, human resources directors and operations managers. Previous operational experience is helpful -- but it's not necessary to understand and use the information. You will benefit if you are responsible for or assist with designing a Security Program, conducting operational reviews, training employees or writing policy and procedures.

The Workplace Violence Manual uses a logical and strategic model -- and problem-solving scenarios -- to help you understand the concept of personal protection and workplace safety. By understanding the cause and effect relationships between personal and work habits, a company's policies and operating procedures -- and the behaviors exhibited by offenders -- you can develop and implement a comprehensive, company-wide personal protection and workplace safety program that will significantly reduce your operating risks.
