Workplace violence, in all its forms, is becoming more prevalent and pervasive every year. It is the fourth leading cause of death in the workplace and the leading cause of death of women in the workplace. Workplace Violence: Planning for Prevention and Response gives a comprehensive account of the problem, using a multi-faceted approach to the issues surrounding workplace violence incidents, as well as addressing the ways in which workplace violence affects victims, witnesses, the workforce, family members, and management.

Topics include:

  • Near misses
  • Workplace culture that may breed violence
  • Background screening
  • Early warning signs
  • Proactively dealing with anger
  • Victims of workplace violence
  • Policies and procedures
  • Legal obligations
  • Reaction and recovery
  • Training
  • Investigation incidents
  • Violence on campus
  • Cyber threats and bullying

In addition, a series of Appendices provide sample policies and checklists for organizations to form action and response plans to manage incidents both large and small. The focus also includes organizations that are forced to address violent individuals in settings where law enforcement may not be immediately available.

Kim M. Kerr is Chief Information Officer for Verisys Corporation. He is a former Vice President and General Manager of LexisNexis Risk & Information Analysis group, Screening Solutions. He also served as a security planner for three Olympic Games and as an area security manager for AT&T Corporate Security.
