This unique 90 minute training aims to help prevent domestic violence related attacks in the workplace by focusing on effective, proactive safety strategies. Threat assessment and management expert Lynn Fairweather uses real case studies and cutting edge research to show how domestic violence spillover occurs and how professionals can identify potentially lethal situations before they explode. The session begins with several examples of recent spillover attacks, followed by statistical information on the prevalence and “common denominators” of such cases. Participants will then be introduced to key threat assessment and management concepts that can be applied to their most critical cases. Through a series of 10 strategies, Ms. Fairweather explains the “3 R’s” that every manager must know, the essential elements of a workplace domestic violence policy, and how to cultivate a supportive employee culture. Featured content areas include situational analysis, program evaluation, perpetrator lethality factors, and target hardening techniques. Attendees will leave with an enhanced knowledge of domestic violence spillover, as well as a toolbox of practical ideas on how to implement prevention strategies in their own facilities.

Why Should You Attend

Statistically speaking, every large company has domestic violence in their midst, whether they realize it or not. More than half of women (and many men) have experienced physical, sexual, or severe emotional abuse during their lifetime and most of these victims are employed, as are their abusers. When both show up to their jobs, the abuse and harassment often follow, emerging as domestic violence “spillover” in the workplace. The spillover spectrum ranges from repetitive phone calls on the mild end, to mass shootings on the extreme. Of course, violent incidents are a primary concern, but the impact of domestic violence in the workplace reaches far beyond human safety alone. Abused employees have higher absenteeism and lower productivity rates than non-abused employees. They also have over 40% higher health care costs and a greater chance of leaving the company or being fired because of what they are experiencing at home and at work. Their abusers create a significant liability risk for employers facing everything from OSHA violations to multi-million dollar post-incident lawsuits. If employee victims aren’t coming forward and management isn’t responding correctly, then the company is “flying blind”, unable to see the dangers before them. Employers should attend this training because while it is within their power to address and defeat the insidious enemy of domestic violence, they can’t do it without understanding the nature of their opponent and knowing exactly what tools to use in the battle against it.
