Event Description

Disagreements at work happen every day. When emotions escalate, situations can get out of control. Even when no physical harm occurs, bullying can leave deep emotional scars, and the consequences can have a profound effect on morale. Acts of violence, while rare, become headline news and can cause injuries or death. However, knowing what to do can help you maintain a safer, more productive work environment for everyone.

We’ll look at these five key aspects of preventing, recognizing and addressing threats:

  1. Signs of a hostile work environment
  2. How to handle a bully at work
  3. How to conduct a workplace investigation
  4. Jobs that are prone to violent acts
  5. Warning signs of workplace violence

This complimentary event will include a live Q&A session, so bring your questions.
