Q & A – Are there warning signs that precede a violent event to watch for?

Q: Are there warning signs that precede a violent event to watch for?

A: Look for signs of “attack” behavior.  This might include threats, intimidation, bullying, or any other behavior where the employee is making reference to “getting even” or harming another.  Train employees and supervisors to take all threats seriously.  If an employee or supervisor observes signs of potential violence, make sure that they know to inform appropriate company officials immediately.
