Workplace Risk Assessment Program Manager

The Workplace Risk Assessment (WRA) program manager is available upon request from management to assist in understanding certain types of conduct at work.

The WRA program manager 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.

After talking with the supervisor, manager, or academic advisor, the WRA program manager will contact the Risk Assessment Team (RATeam)—a multidisciplinary group of representatives from human resources/labor relations and/or the Deans’ Offices, Security, JHU and JHHS Legal, and the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP). The supervisor or manager will complete the Management Intake Form which includes: 

  • Description of the event
  • Work history
  • Stressors
  • 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. The effectiveness of the risk assessment process depends on the interactive and complementary expertise and functioning of RATeam members. As a result, the RATeam can provide support, guidance, and recommendations to management.

  • Consult by phone
  • Provide resources and referrals
  • Give presentations to departments or units to talk about the risk assessment process or the Johns Hopkins Continuum of Disruptive Behaviors at Work and how to respond when it is time to take action
