Description: Workplace violence is becoming more prevalent and pervasive even as the number of fatalities has declined in recent years. Homicide is still the #1 cause of workplace deaths for women in the US. Workplace Violence: Planning for Prevention and Response gives a comprehensive account of the problem using a multi-faceted approach to the issues affected around the incident. The solution is outlined using real life examples of incidents and how the incidents affected all aspects of the organization. This includes the victims, witnesses, entire workforce, family members, management and the brand of the business. A series of chapters helps the reader form an action plan and a response plan to manage incidents both large and small. The focus also includes organizations that might have to go "hands on" with violent individuals in certain settings where law enforcement may not be immediately available, like hospitals or schools. Written from the perspective of a practitioner with many years of field experience in corporate security, investigations, background screening, and event security, and driven by his passion for ensuring that violent acts not occur on his watch, Kerr's book allows the reader to understand the depth and weight of the issues around this unfortunate fact of workplace security, including the practical aspects like policies and procedures needed for a successful plan. He can speak first-hand about complex issues like corporate liability for violent or threatening acts committed by employees, as well as issues of privacy. This book belongs on the desk of every security manager and HR professional, and offers solid advice to all managers regardless of the size of their organization. * A renowned expert addresses the early warning signs and gives the reader perspective on how to decelerate the issue.
