Jim Hardeman, executive director of Workplace Violence Interventions and Strategies in Plymouth, Mass., recalls a time when he faced harassment as the corporate EAP manager at Polaroid Corp. "I had just started mandatory training on guidelines for our workplace violence prevention program and a number of employee were pissed off," he explains.

...
But Jim Hardeman believes it's also because HR people do not typically have the knowledge or skills to conduct their own safety planning. Because of this, they'll fail to notify security prior to a termination, they'll neglect to have another person in the room with them, they'll fail to think through an emergency escape plan, or they'll leave things on their desks than can be used to harm them. (See sidebar: "How to terminate potential violent employees - and live")
All of this can be remedied by the appropriate training and assistance from workplace violence consultants, but companies have to be willing to make the investment. "This is an investment that is absolutely instrumental in saving the lives of HR people," Hardeman says.
