Workplace Violence Prevention Discussed in Webinar
TRSA recently held a webinar titled “Workplace Violence Prevention: What Every Employer Needs to Know” featuring Todd B. Logsdon, Esq., Fisher & Phillips LLP, Louisville, KY. The two main topics Logsdon focused on was understanding workplace violence and mitigating risks.
Logsdon focused on more common occurrences of workplace violence such as physical or verbal assault, threats, bullying and harassment, and less on shootings and other extreme acts of violence which are very rare. He offered examples of those who are at a higher risk for violence:
- Workers who exchange money with the public
- Deliver passengers or goods
- Work alone or in small groups early in the day or late at night
- Work in high-crime areas, and those who work in community settings and homes
He suggested all places of employment should implement some type of workplace violence plan in case something should happen.
