About the Book

This book defines workplace violence and identifies possible settings where violence may be more likely to occur, how to recognize the signs, and what to do if you suspect an employee is a potential risk. The contributing authors represent a wide variety of experiences, including mental health clinicians, security experts, workplace safety researchers and practitioners, and lawyers.

The book focuses on: the different types of workplace violence; underlying psychological factors that may prompt someone to act out violently; legal issues such as employer liability, due process of rights, and state legislation addressing workplace violence; and tools available to employers to avert or reduce the likelihood of a violent incident or what measures to take in the aftermath of an event of violence. Some of the topics covered include post-9/11 safety concerns, the role of law enforcement in assisting employers with workplace violence, and conducting a site security assessment.
