Description

Workplace Safety: Establishing an Effective Violence Prevention Program includes a powerful model on how to overcome organizational rationalization, objection, and denial when confronted with proposing a workplace violence protection program.

The book offers real-life cases studies on how violence was successfully avoided using the book's program, and also shows how to recognize and report precursor behaviors that precede violence.

In addition, the book demonstrates proven methods for properly, and effectively, responding to violence should it occur, and tactfully managing the aftermath.

Review quote

"For organizations that have not developed procedures to deter or respond to violent incidents in the workplace and those that do not understand the concept of these issues, this could be a helpful guide." --ASIS Dynamics, Workplace Safety

"The authors close with the hope that their book `will spark discussions in workplaces and help bring about the development of effective, reasonable, defendable programs designed to protect people by preventing violence'. They have done a good job." --Professional Security Magazine Online
