Bogomtale fra forlaget.

A major, though still under-recognised problem, workplace violence is one of today's most serious occupational hazards. This practical guide offers valuable information on how to systematically design and develop workplace prevention programs and policies. The book approaches the issue from two fronts: it demonstrates how workplace violence can be prevented by examining how organisations and groups are handling the problem, and it presents a reliable and effective methodology for developing workplace violence prevention programmes. The comprehensive guide gives employers, workers and others concerned with workplace violence useful direction on: assessing and describing risk, designing and implementing preventive and reactive measures, monitoring the effectiveness of prevention and reactive measures, and reviewing the risk management process. Every worker deserves to work in a safe and secure environment and violence should not be accepted as part of any job. This book presents concrete guidance for combating violence in the workplace while also providing a wider understanding of the factors and conditions which contribute to it.
