Workplace Violence Prevention: It's More Teaching Signs, Symptoms, and Head for the Exit!

Conducting a violence in the workplace training program in your company is more than offering a presentation on the signs and symptoms of an employee who might go postal.

Workplace violence may have many antecedents, and signs and symptoms, although important, are really too little, too late to stand alone as a prevention strategy. While training employees hide in place or escape through the nearest exit is certainly worthwhile, and could save a life, there is a lot more to preventing workplace violence prevention if you really want to reduce risk of death in your workplace.
