SHRM, ASIS Cooperating on Workplace Violence Prevention Standard

ASIS International and the Society for Human Resource Management announced they will work together to develop a Workplace Violence Prevention and Intervention American National Standard that is based on the ASIS Workplace Violence Prevention and Response Guideline published in 2005.

The standard will provide an overview of general policies, processes, and protocols organizations can adopt to help prevent threatening behavior and violence affecting workers. It will include practical definitions of workplace violence, will classify incidents based on the relationship between a perpetrator and a victim, and will address security prevention and intervention strategies and how to detect, investigate, manage, and address threatening behavior or violent episodes at a workplace.

"The ASIS Commission on Standards and Guidelines is excited about this partnership. The fundamental change of guidelines to standards and taking leadership in this area are of significant value to ASIS members as well as businesses, the media, governmental entities, and the public," said Mark Geraci, CPP, chairman of the ASIS Commission on Standards and Guidelines.

"SHRM sees standards development and application as key attributes of a professional society," said Lee Webster, SPHR, director of HR Standards for SHRM. "We look forward to developing this standard with ASIS and leveraging our mutual expertise to improve the safety and productivity of workplaces in all sectors."
