Workplace Violence Threat Assessment

CIS assists employers throughout Florida in assessing workplace threats and employee behavior of concern.

Over the past 28 years, CIS has assisted employers in the Tampa and Orlando areas in reducing risks of violence through workplace threat assessment and management.

Most acts of targeted violence in the workplace are preceded by a process of ideation, planning, and preparation. Correspondingly, employees proceeding on the pathway to violence often exhibit personality characteristics and behaviors which can serve as a warning. In these situations, conducting a workplace violence threat assessment can provide critical opportunity for intervention or protective response.

Our team of professionals has assisted scores of Florida businesses in assessing potential threat situations and navigating complex and sensitive decisions essential to managing risk.

To ensure that our assessments are both functionally-effective and legally-defensible, CIS investigates and assesses threats in accordance with best practices as promoted by the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals (ATAP), U.S. Secret Service, and National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime. And when applicable, our workplace violence threat assessments are also supported by the use of evidence-based structured professional judgement (SPJ) instruments, such as the Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk 21 (WAVR-21).
