Prevent Workplace Violence Before It Starts: Things You Can Do Today

Register here>>

The tragedy at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis MD and the ongoing attacks on journalists across America and the world should remind all Ohio media outlets of the urgent need to assess and improve workplace security.

The Ohio News Media Association and the Ohio Association of Broadcasters are offering their members exclusive training on preventing workplace violence on Dec. 6 from 10:00-11:30 am.  This online training isn’t a simple webinar – it’s a fully interactive version of an acclaimed, in-person program that has been conducted for organizations ranging from Ohio school districts to ABC News.

The training will be presented by Randy Van Dyne and other experts from the University of Findlay All Hazards Training Center and will show news organizations how to recognize threats early on and develop a course of action to prevent the violence from happening. For the specific topics covered, see the summary below.

This training is recommended for publishers, station managers, GMs, human resources managers, news directors editors or other members of your team with responsibility for security and safety.  While the in-person version of this training could cost thousands of dollars to bring to your organization, there is no cost for ONMA and OAB members for the pilot program of this online session. However, registration is required.

Don’t miss this one-time, unique opportunity to learn how to protect your workplace and employees!

While there is no cost for ONMA and OAB members to take part, registration is required.

Summary of Prevent Workplace Violence Before It Starts: Things You Can Do Today

This 90 minute training session will have three objectives:

  1. Familiarize the audience with the philosophy behind Threat Assessment Management
    1. Although there are different models for implementing a Threat Assessment program, the Secret Service model, which Findlay All Hazards has utilized since 2002, is the easiest to learn and implement. Although it is a simple/logical approach, it is still a highly effective way of identifying and mitigating the potential threat.
    2. Describing what targeted violence is and then subsequently describing the targeted violence process.
  2. The second objective will consist of:
    1. Educating the audience on how to implement the Threat Assessment model within their organization.
    2. Discuss the need for and considerations of what to include in a Workplace Violence Policy
    3. Make Recommendations on who should be included on the Threat Assessment Team
    4. Identifying both personnel within the organization and other community resources that you can bring in to assist.
  1. Analysis of previous violent acts towards the media and how having a violence prevention program, such as a Threat Assessment Team, may have prevented those violent acts from occurring.

At the end of the session, the participants can expect to have a firm understanding of how Threat Assessment can be interwoven in to their organization.  Giving them enough knowledge about the system to be able to begin the implementation process themselves.
