If you are concerned about behaviors that might escalate into violence and your supervisor or manager is not available, you may make a report to human resources/labor relations. If at any point safety is a concern, contact Security immediately or call 911.
Share with human resources/labor relationships representative the events you observed and how they impacted your job or academic responsibilities. He or she will contact the Workplace Risk Assessment program manager or the Risk Assessment Team (RATeam) — a multidisciplinary group of representatives from human resources/labor relations and/or the Dean’s Office, Security, JHU or JHH/S Legal, and the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP).
The RATeam will assist management in determining if certain behaviors indicate that someone is "at risk" for:
- Violating policies that address violence in the workplace
- Becoming violent
- Behaving in ways that interferes with a safe, healthy and secure work environment.
The supervisor will complete the Management Intake Form. If unavailable, the Risk Assessment Team (RAT) will work with human resources/labor relations to collect the data which includes:
- Description of the event
- Work history
- Work environment/management style
- Baseline and acute “at-risk” behaviors
Typically, conducting a comprehensive, multidisciplinary assessment of risk is the best way to assist management in protecting everyone’s safety.
