This program will emphasize the most common forms of workplace violence which are low level, aggressive and hostile encounters, and domestic violence impacting job performance and security. The first half will focus on the actual de-escalation of aggression. This is for the early stages of belligerence with angry employees, clients and visitors. The second half of the program will address the concern of Domestic Violence spilling over into the workplace. With 75% of female occupational homicides (non-robbery) caused by ex-partners, it is the greatest threat to women in the workplace. However, the impact on job performance is much broader issue that impacts almost every large company. This webinar will help participants learn how to identify potential victim-employees, approach appropriately and offer effective support as well as learn the unique challenges in security planning.
