Workplace Violence Threat Assessment

CIS consultants assist employers in assessing and managing workplace threat situations.

Workplace Violence Threat Assessment

Over the past twenty years, CIS has assisted a diverse range of clients in assessing and managing workplace threat situations.

Many acts of workplace violence committed by employees are preceded by a process of ideation, planning, and preparation. Correspondingly, employees accelerating on the pathway to targeted 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 action.

Over the past two decades, CIS has provided expert assistance to a diverse range of companies and organizations in assessing potential threat situations and navigating challenging decisions essential to managing risk. In addition to businesses, our clients include schools and universities, non-profit and religious organizations, public figures, and victims of stalking behavior and domestic violence.

To ensure that our workplace violence threat assessments are both functionally-effective and legally-defensible, CIS conducts threat assessments 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. When applicable, our threat assessments are also supported by the use of evidence-based structured professional judgement instruments, such as the Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk 21 (WAVR-21).
