Workplace Violence: Trauma Informed Model
Be prepared – State Fund’s Workplace Violence Trauma Informed Model
Violence in the workplace presents an unbelievable challenge for employees, employers and workers’ compensation providers. Horrific mass shootings leave victims feeling violated and traumatized. Usually, the workplace will be locked down for months due to investigations. Claim reporting, medical care, benefit delivery are disrupted and your protocols will seem overly burdensome in the midst of chaos. How can you cut to the chase to provide valuable victim support? Are you prepared for immediate response?
State Fund’s Major Claims Operation adopted a Trauma Informed model and partnered with the Ventura County D.A.’s Victim Unit and the California Victim Compensation Board to help a policyholder’s employees rebuild their lives following a recent mass shooting. 5 employees were murdered.
