Preventing Violence in the Workplace: Threat Assessment and Prevention Strategies

Author: D.S. CHAUHAN
Published in PAM, Vol. 4 No. 3

Chauhan argues that since there is no quick fix to the resolution of
complex problems associated with violence in the workplace, a multidisciplinary
approach is needed to analyze the causes of violence and to
identify effective educational and training strategies to enhance the
understanding of private and public sector managers in dealing with
organizational violence. The purpose of this paper is to: (1) examine the
sources or causes of organizational violence; (2) assess the threats and
warning signs; (3) identify employer responsibilities; and (4) specify major
violence prevention strategies and components of a violence management
program.
