Preparing your team for Workplace Violence

In this day and age, violence prevention plans and drills are as important as drills for fires and earthquakes. Make them a part of your organization’s emergency and business contingency plans, and practice, practice, practice. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that over 2 million American workers are victims of workplace violence each year. Violence can strike any workplace; no area is immune. But who may be more at risk? Commonly, violence occurs at work and refers to a broad spectrum of behaviors (e.g., violent acts by clients, patients, visitors, and/or coworkers) that result in a concern for personal safety. Workplace violence may also result in direct and indirect financial impact such as jury awards for injuries; higher than average turnover; increased requests for medical leaves; unusually high time and attendance issues; and stress related illnesses.  First and foremost, safety is top priority. Training will make you and your management team aware of some basic strategies and help you begin a thought process on how to implement or enhance a workplace violence training program for your organization.

Course Objectives:

* Describe actions to take when confronted with:
   - An active shooter.
   - Law enforcement officers responding to the situation.
* Recognize potential workplace violence indicators. 
* Recognize pathway to violence/attack.
* Describe actions to take to prevent and prepare for potential active shooter incidents.

FEAT members are welcomed and encouraged to bring additional members of their management team to this program.
