Workplace Violence Exercise

Lesson Plan

Workplace Violence can be one of the most threatening aspects of being in a workplace, and in some cases, people will become extremely angry over it. If you know someone who regularly displays violent behavior, you should definitely talk to their employer about possible disciplinary action, and get them help.

Professional counseling is often required to help people deal with workplace violence. This is usually done on an on-site basis where the victim and the accused have to sit down and discuss their conflicts. The person who gets to be accountable for doing this exercise must be a supervisor, or someone else who is in charge of enforcing workplace rules, or who is in a position of authority over the employee in question. These are the people who are usually going to decide what action is taken and whether or not to take action.

The person needs to remember that in order to get the best results, the person needs to stay calm and composed throughout the process. This is especially important, because anger tends to rise and spread quickly when the person is being criticized. The person should try to remain calm and level-headed at all times, and avoid talking about anything related to the incident. Even things like whether or not the person was really angry at the start of the dispute should never be brought up, because the person will probably only cause more anger to arise.

Another important part of performing a workplace violence exercise is to get the person to come to a place of peace. It is important to allow the person to relax, and think about why they were mad in the first place. They might be frustrated with something that is not being done properly, and they may also be angry over something that the boss was doing that they did not agree with. Once the person has allowed themselves to come to a place of peace, they are able to express their anger and make the person's job much easier in the future.

If the person has already been disciplined by the employer for some sort of inappropriate behavior, the person should also let their supervisor know about it before engaging in a work environment violence exercise. This will help the supervisor to make sure that the appropriate discipline has already been put into place before this kind of situation arises again.

After a work environment violence exercise is done, the person's supervisor may decide to remove the person from the workplace temporarily for a time in order to further explore whether or not this is the case. if the person exhibits any violence during that time. In extreme cases, this might include the person being placed on desk duty or under surveillance, depending on the circumstances.

Once the workplace violence has been addressed, the person can continue to work, but they need to practice working with others in order to keep the anger at bay. It is also a good idea for the person to speak to coworkers about the entire situation and let them know how things went in the workplace. If the person is not receiving the same treatment in the workplace that they would receive if they had been accused of workplace violence, this can lead to a hostile feeling in the workplace.

Workplace Violence exercises are a good way for both parties to resolve problems that are causing problems inside the workplace. They are helpful in many different ways, and are a great way for the people involved to learn how to work together in harmony.
