This panel presentation with local experts including representatives from the FBI, the Norfolk Police Department and the American Red Cross will take a deep dive into violence in the workplace to help Human Resource Professionals assess active threats and develop workplace violence prevention plans for their worksites. Workplace violence statistics have been increasing over the years and include acts/threats of physical violence, harassment, intimidation or threatening disruptive behavior and can range from threats, verbal abuse to physical assaults, 1st person shooter events, and homicide. It can impact employees, clients, customers and visitors. OSHA currently identifies homicide as the 4th leading cause of fatal occupational injuries in the U.S. Our panel will share their expertise to help you learn how to proactively take on this important issue.
