This concluding chapter provides suggestions for both preventing violence in the workplace and preparing for their aftermath. Given that workplace aggression and violence is a growing concern for society, prevention strategies are important in curtailing this growing problem. A well-rounded prevention plan should include an increase in training, security, environmental modifications, policy revisions, and interpersonal finesse. In addition, plans should also be made for a response in the event violence is not prevented. For example, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration may require notification of injuries or fatalities. Having the reporting procedures outlined in the plan can expedite this process and facilitate compliance with regulations regarding when and how to report incidents. Overall, these strategies will contribute towards healthier work environments and stronger relationships between workers and employers.
