Training and Education
One component of the Workplace Risk Assessment Program is ensuring that all employees are aware of their responsibilities and obligations under the Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System policies that call for zero tolerance of violent behavior, threats, bullying, and intimidation. The level and nature of training will vary depending on the respective roles of the employees.
The Workplace Risk Assessment program manager is available to:
- Consult by phone
- Provide resources and referrals
- Give presentations to departments or units to talk about the risk assessment process, the Johns Hopkins Continuum of Disruptive Behaviors at Work, and how to respond when it is time to take action.
The goal of these services is raise awareness and standardize the ways in which we think and talk about disruptive behavior so that we can all respond consistently and proactively.
Awareness means understanding that behaviors left unchecked can escalate into violence. If there is a behavior that makes you feel uncomfortable, don’t ignore it. Take action well before the point at which violence might occur. If you or someone you know is concerned about any of these behaviors, you may contact your supervisor or academic advisor, human resources manager, Security, the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program, or the Workplace Risk Assessment program manager at 410-955-2579 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
