NISRU Workshop Wednesdays: Tipping Point: Keys to Developing/Implementing a Comprehensive Violence Prevention

February 2 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Even as other types of crime drop, violence is soaring. FBI data for 2020 show a 30 percent increase in murder, the highest year-over-year increase ever. Aggravated assault is up 12 percent. Because of this, it is critical, now more than ever, that all organizations develop and implement comprehensive violence prevention programs for their employees, contractors, and volunteers. This workshop will provide participants with:

• An understanding of the key components of the updated ASIS/ANSI Standard on Workplace Violence and Active Assailant – Prevention, Intervention and Response

• Background on how COVID, working from home, returning to work, social divisions, and other factors have triggered record violence

• An understanding of potential liability exposure to an organization that does not have a Violence Prevention Program in place

• Strategies for developing effective WPV training programs at 4 different levels, and for a virtual workforce
