Preventing Workplace Violence
A Guide for Employers and Practitioners



March 1999 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book, through an examination of a number of representative real world cases,

provides a detailed look at what happened to some companies and traditional tools

for occupational health and safety, discipline, and employee relations now used by business and labour leaders are inadequate and inappropriate in responding to the problems of workplace violence. In fact, the methods and approaches commonly in use actually worsen the problem in some cases.

The book summarizes the most up-to-date learning in this area and offers practical guidance and recommendations for assessing the risk of violence, steps for preventing workplace violence, and a through discussion of employees rights and employer's responsibilities.
