Session Description

Workplace investigators should always be concerned about their safety when conducting investigations. By definition, we are meeting with people who have been accused of wrongdoing that often involves psychological or physical violence, or both. There are highly significant consequences to complainants and respondents that can involve personal safety, job security, identity, and reputation. We may be seen as a great threat to the people being investigated. We often meet alone, in potentially unsafe places, where we are highly vulnerable, even if we are trained in law enforcement. And we are meeting people with often-unknown histories that can include violence and personal instability. In other words, we won’t know we are in it until we are in it.

With this understanding, this webinar should make you safer and may even save your life.

Learning Objectives:
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the inherent risks in conducting workplace investigations
  • Identify warning signs of an unsafe situation
  • Minimize actions that increase risk
