Editorial Reviews

The Colorado Lawyer
News reports of violence in the workplace are all too common, but many of us continue to believe that "it can't happen here" or "it can't be prevented." The Workplace Violence Prevention Handbook dispels those notions by reminding us that violence isn't always a tragic event performed by a disgruntled former employee....The Handbook's authors are experts on workplace violence...They provide a lengthy bibliography and list of resources for employers to explore beyond the book. OVerall, this book is probably most useful for employers that do not have safety programs in place. However, it also would be useful for supervisors in any organization, because it extensively describes warning signs of workplace violence that are often overlooked.
