Most books on workplace violence focus on psychological profiles. In a change of pace, Schneid examines the issue from a safety/health professional's viewpoint, taking all angles, legal issues, and potential ramifications into account. Chapters focus on not only in-house efforts to prevent violent incidents, but also government and legal standards directly or indirectly related to workers rights and corporate liability. Sharp increases in workplace violence continue to take an unfortunate toll on businesses everywhere. Preventative measures may be well-intentioned, but pose troubling conflicts in themselves, pitting each employee's privacy vs. overall worker protection. A full self-evaluation of your business and its personnel may be the key to safeguard against workplace violence. TOC:Individual Profiles and Warning Signs.- Workplace Violence Prevention Programs.- OSHA and Other Potential Liability.- Workers Compensation Liability.- Negligent Hiring.- Negligent Retention.- Negligent Supervision.- Negligent Training.- Negligent Security.- Wrongful Death.- Other Legal Considerations.- What to Expect After an Incident.- Selected Studies and Readings.
