Even with post-Sept. 11 security improvements, there are nearly 2 million violent workplace incidents a year. Employers must be prepared to quickly identify and neutralize potential hazards — after all, a safe working environment means higher morale and productivity, and fewer injuries and stress-related illnesses.

While there is no one-size-fits-all strategy, there are proactive steps you and your company can take to protect your employees and create a safe, productive working environment. From Warning Signs to Aftermath outlines best practices to develop effective workplace violence-prevention programs — giving you concrete ideas you can immediately put into action to keep your employees safe. Plus, you find out how to recognize potentially dangerous situations — so you can defuse brewing trouble.

You also learn:

  • Tips on dealing with aggressive employees
  • Other organizations’ successful violence-prevention strategies
  • Specific warning signs that indicate an employee may be prone to violence
  • How to help employees cope if an incident does occur

What’s more, this unique pamphlet combines violence-prevention techniques with details on case law — so you understand the legal boundaries when taking action against violent or potentially violent employees.
