If you are concerned about behaviors that might escalate into violence, talk with your supervisor, manager, or academic advisor or chair. Share with him or her the events you observed and how they impacted your job or academic responsibilities. If your supervisor or manager is not available, you can make a report to Human Resources. If your program advisor or director is not available, you may make a report to the appropriate dean for faculty or student affairs. You may also make a report to the Workplace Risk Assessment program manager. If at any point safety is a concern, Security should be contacted immediately or call 911.
After talking with your supervisor, manager, or academic advisor, he or she will then contact the Risk Assessment Team – a multidisciplinary group of representatives from Human Resources and/or the Deans’ Offices, Security, JHU and JHHS Legal, and the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP).
The Risk Assessment Team processes are part of a larger Workplace Risk Assessment Program within the Johns Hopkins Institutions meant to prevent and intervene in all disruptive behaviors in the workplace, including:
- Mild Bullying
- Moderate to Severe Bullying
- Stated threats
- Domestic or intimate partner violence
- Physical violence
