A Seven Step Management Process Leading to a Culture of Personnel Safety & SecurityGuide for Government and Corporate Managers and LeadersThere is nothing more destructive to teamwork and personal security than threats, bullying and potentialMoreA Seven Step Management Process Leading to a Culture of Personnel Safety & SecurityGuide for Government and Corporate Managers and LeadersThere is nothing more destructive to teamwork and personal security than threats, bullying and potential physical violence - whether from inside or from an external source. Good management and good leadership start with a workforce that is secure and safe. This book is about the most fundamental of human fears - violence. The author is a nationally recognized expert on all aspects of workplace quality, employee development, leadership and workplace security. Her thought provoking seminars and books have brought practical solutions to the challenges of leadership. In this book, Rita presents a 7-step process for use by management and staff to deal head on with safety and security concerns. Once you understand the cause and types of workplace violence, you can then develop a plan to interrupt it, mitigate its effects or, ideally, eliminate it completely from the workplace. Effective workplace violence prevention (WVP) programs are essential to identify potential trouble spots and trouble makers, minimize the impact of any outbreaks and ensure all members of staff know what policies are in place to protect and safeguard them. The book is packed with useful tips, best practices, case studies and checklists that walk you through the process from understanding the violence cycle to implementing an effective WVP program and ensuring that all management and employees are aware of it. There are practical tips on managing conflict - from bulling to domestic violence, dealing with mental health concerns and avoiding negligent hiring. There are sections on improving safety and security for workers in the field and detailed advice on what to do in the event of an outbreak of violence. There are also sample documents that can be used to create workplace violence policies, report personnel policies and forms. If your organization already has a WVP program in place, you still need to read this book to see how the program can be improved using the many cited best practices and case studies. If your organization doesnt have a workplace violence prevention program this book is an essential read - not just for the managers who will have to implement it but all employees who are concerned about the safety of themselves and their colleagues.
