The material in today’s Advisor is adapted from BLR’s 10-Minute HR Trainer session, “Coping with the Aftermath of Workplace Violence.”
Review Security Procedures
- Review security procedures and equipment (surveillance cameras, silent alarms, etc.). Discuss any changes made as a result of the incident.
- If there was a breach of security that allowed the perpetrator into the workplace (such as doors left open, an employee knew the person and let him in, etc.), this problem needs to be thoroughly discussed and corrected.
—Remind employees about sign-in procedures, visitor’s badges, and other steps designed to prevent workplace violence.
—Emphasize that these rules apply to former employees and friends and family of employees, as well as to strangers.
- Encourage employees to report any threats, strange behavior in an employee, or suspicious activity immediately.
