Bruce’s Summary: With the recent wave of violence in the news again and again, a review of your “Workplace Violence Prevention Program” is in order and if you don’t have a program, it’s really time to seriously consider getting one. It’s one of those programs you hope you never need, but you’re grateful later that you had one, if needed. The authors present a good overview of the steps to take in preparing a plan, and provide a copy of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) latest brochure as well as some statistics that can be used in training. As I’ve said before, it’s sad that we are at a point where fighting for your life and training how to do that must now be a major focus in protecting our employees but also our citizens. Please share! Great overview. “None of the information contained herein should be construed as legal advice, nor are Calvin Associates consultants engaged to offer legal advice.
