This was not a "traditional" research project. The University of Findlay received funding from the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health to develop a series of Conflict Resolution Video Training Scenarios. Therefore, this effort was a "training tool development project," with the express purpose of preventing workplace injuries due to conflicts in the workplace that could lead to physical or emotional harm. Three targeted populations were identified: 1) university campus security personnel, 2) collegiate resident life staff, and 3) workplace environment (through Human Resource Managers). The primary emphasis of the entire effort was placed on the creation of Decision Making Training Tools that can be utilized by members of each of the above referenced target populations to train their respective employees to better prepare for, and respond to, incidents that require the resolution of conflict or potential conflict. The Decision Making Training Tools were developed in such a way that trainers at each respective organization can utilize them in one-on-one or group settings with their employees. A downloadable training manual, color coordinated scenario flow chart, and detailed instructional video describing how to best utilize the Training Scenarios were included. Training materials were developed for the following: A: For School/Campus Safety and Security 1. Marketed to Student Services Administrators for use with Residence Hall Directors and Advisors; 2. Marketed to unarmed school/campus security officials. Also an option here for use with unarmed security officials in any setting. B: For Workplace Violence Avoidance 1. Marketed to Human Resource Managers for use with supervisors and workers. The training tools developed in this effort can be used to prevent workplace injuries through the resolution of conflict that may result in physical and/or emotional harm to employees, employers, customers, vendors, visitors, and others who are associated with the "workplace". Each of the Video Scenario training programs identified above focused on various situations that can and do occur in workplaces. Focusing around typical activities/events that may occur in each of the workplace settings is an excellent way to portray, teach and adopt the conflict resolution for each of the targeted populations. UF was able to draw from arid expand upon our previous efforts on similar projects to develop and produce the three proposed Video Scenario training tools under this NIOSH funded effort. The developed training tools are titled: 1. Situations and Simulations for Campus Security; 2. Situations and Simulations for College Advisors; 3. Situations and Simulations for Human Resource Managers These three Video Scenario training tools are now available for distribution.
