The Intersection of Workplace Violence and Terrorism:  Expanding OSHA’s Workplace Violence Typology
Current incidents of extremist violence at home and abroad demonstrate the need for an expansion of existing OSHA’s workplace violence typology. As demonstrated by the attacks at Charlie Hebdo, San Bernardino, the Planned Parenthood offices in Colorado Springs, and others, terrorism is obviously a potential source of violence in the workplace, and one typically not included in standard models of workplace violence awareness prevention and training.  By training employees, supervisors and threat assessment teams to recognize not only the classic warning signs of Types I through IV workplace violence, but also Type V violence, characterized by unique warning behaviors, employers can improve their chances for early recognition and intervention in acts of violence from Home Grown Violent Extremists (HVE) and terrorist organizations. 

Steven Crimando is the principal of the operational risk management consultancy, Behavioral Science Applications. He is an internationally-recognized expert in the prevention, response and recovery from incidents of mass violence. He has developed violence prevention and active shooter response programs for government agencies, multinational corporations, and NGOs, such as the United Nations. Mr. Crimando has published many professional articles on this topic and serves as an expert to the media and the courts in violence prevention and response. His major contributions to the field include collaboration on the New York City Police Department-Counter-Terrorism Division: “Active Shooter: Recommendations and Analysis for Risk Mitigation” project, and the National Criminal Justice Training Center: “Comprehensive Active Shooter Incident Management (CASIM)” program funded by U.S. Department of Justice. He has provided high-level violence prevention and active shooter response training programs to professional and academic audiences in business, military and first responder organizations worldwide.
