Workplace Violence in the Healthcare Industry

Free  SecurityInfoWatch webinar

Thursday, February 24, 2011 –  1PM ET

The seminar will examine how workplace violence typically manifests itself within different hospital departments, and we’ll examine some recent incidents which elucidate the indicators for violence. Included in the seminar is discussion of the Joint Commission’s 2010 advisory on the likelihood of workplace violence sentinel events, and we’ll close with a review of response scenarios to active shooter incidents and then an open Q&A with our speaker.

Key learning points:

• How workplace violence presents itself in healthcare
• Common forms of workplace violence among unique hospital departments
(e.g., ER, behavioral health)
• Initial indicators and warning signs of violence
• Healthcare situations with a preponderance to escalate to workplace violence
• A review of the Joint Commission sentinel event alert of 2010
• Active shooter response recommendations
• Where to turn for additional training resources

The webinar is chiefly designed for healthcare corporate security managers and healthcare security personnel, but all hospital administrators and involved staff members will find the content relevant and useful. Attendance is also recommended for anyone who provides a security service to the healthcare environment (e.g., specifying consultants, systems integrators working with hospitals, etc.).

***This program may be available for continuing education credits. For a certificate of attendance you can remit to your organization, please contact webinar host and SIW Editor-in-Chief Geoff Kohl at

  2. Will there be any additional webinars in the future?
    My company is looking into purchasing a Fargo Persona ID printer, and we would like to learn more about how it could be used to decrease workplace violence.


    • We don’t have any webinars scheduled at the moment, so the fastest way to find out how an ID printer could be used in a workplace violence prevention (WPV) program, look under “Find A Consultant” and find a member who specializes in the WPV area.

  3. Is it okay to put a portion of this on my site if I publish a reference point to this web site?
