We see the signs in airports, malls, and large public venues; “If you see something – say something”; but what are we supposed to be seeing? These are questions many of us ask ourselves. There have been workplace shootings and public shootings. Our children learn about the concepts of “Run-Hide-Fight” in elementary school. There are now four types of workplace violence categories identified in the workplace; OSHA named three, the FBI added one. In this session we will discuss the various causes of workplace violence, what employers and employees can do to minimize some types of workplace violence and learn awareness techniques such as those taught to fighter pilots to help us be more vigilant of our surroundings.
