Workplace Violence Awareness Overview


Workplace violence is often thought of as a physical attack, but it may also include threats, intimidation, and other disruptive behavior, oral or written statements, and gestures or expressions that communicate a direct or indirect threat of physical harm.  Preventing workplace violence is a growing concern within universities, and managers need to have the tools and resources to assist their students and employees with this.

This toolkit will provide you with awareness of violence in the workplace, how to recognize the warning signs, and what actions to take to prevent or minimize violence.  Additionally, you will learn about the valuable resources available on campus to deal with this threat.

If you have any additional questions about this topic please contact Emergency Management and Continuity of Operations at or by phone at (208) 436-3638.


BroncoAlert is a phone and text-based system allowing the university to proactively notify students, faculty and staff when an emergency is taking place on or near campus. BroncoAlert will only be used in critical situations, including weather emergencies, with potential to affect health or safety.
