This comprehensive book contains practical and effective guidance for facility managers in addressing the issue of violence within the workplace. It is written in a straightforward, non-theoretical, reader- friendly format, examining both the risk factors that contribute to workplace violence, as well as the effects of such violence – both for the organization and for those directly impacted. Discussion also includes the procedures for assessing threat, strategies for preventing violence, and strategies for dealing with the consequences of violence. Special situations such as domestic violence which carries over to the workplace, along with racial and sexual harassment are explored, as are various court cases which involve these issues. The new OSHA directive on investigation of workplace violence is also explained.
