Workplace Violence and the Aftermath, Center for Risk Management -According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, workplace violence has been in the top four causes of death after transportation incidents, slips / trips / falls, and contact with objects / equipment for the past many years. Several stressors can cause the amount of violence to increase including recent events such as the COVID-19 pandemic. As these stressors have become more common - loss of jobs, monetary problems, no way to escape everyday life by being under a stay at home order, facing many uncertainties about the future, and many more problems, the occurrence of violent acts at home and in the workplace start to increase. This is when not only the company but all of us in the workplace need to be hypervigilant in identifying and reporting questionable behavior. This class will point out some of the behaviors to look for before violence to others or themselves happens, what to do in case an event does take place, and some of the options available for the companies to ensure an emotionally healthy workplace. It will also give some of the resources available in the event violence does happen and how to help the employees recover from that trauma. This class is taught by John Cherry.
