Preventing Workplace Violence


The Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP), in partnership with UM Emergency Management, is offering this lunchtime seminar for those interested in understanding the source of workplace violence and exploring guidelines for its prevention. A healthy workplace environment should always be free from the threat of violence. While there is no sure way of knowing when someone will resort to a violent act, there are frequent signs that indicate an individual is on the road to violence. Workforce members have an intrinsic responsibility to protect themselves and their fellow co-workers to contribute to a healthy work environment, free from harm or threat of violence. Facilitated by a FSAP employee assistance professional and a UM Emergency Management office official, this seminar will help those wishing to sharpen their capacity to detect troubled workers and discuss options for accessing help. FSAP Health and Wellness seminars are offered as part of the University of Miami’s Well ‘Canes Program.

Coral Gables campus: Tuesday, April 21, 12-1 p.m., University Center, room 211

Miller School campus:  Wednesday, April 22, 12-1 p.m., Dominion Parking Garage, room 155

Rosenstiel campus:  Thursday, April 23, 12-1 p.m., Library Media Room
