Seven Steps to Workplace Violence Prevention
Posted August 11, 2000
I conduct threat assessments and fitness-for-duty evaluations of potentially violent employees. Consequently, I've read many books on the subject, seeking to expand my knowledge. Dr. Braverman's book is the most informative, readable, and practical text available. I recommend it highly to HR professionals, Occupational Health physicians and nurses, employment lawyers (don't be offended by some of Dr. Braverman's constructive criticism of too-conservative corporate counsel!), Employee Assistance professionals, union officials, security officers, anyone who worries about a co-worker's potential for violence--or anyone who has been accused of threatening violence on the job. If more employers took Dr. Braverman's advice, workplace homicides and other forms of violence (e.g., assualts, harassment, hostile work environment, threats, intimidation) would decrease, employee stress would diminish, and worker productivity would improve.Was this review helpful?
