Five factors that make a job dangerous

From a recent presentation by K. Emmerling to Southwest PA (Pittsburgh) Red Cross Disaster Volunteers on dealing with difficult people
  • You work with the public
  • You work after midnight
  • You handle money
  • You work alone (or are the ranking person present)
  • There are weapons present
The presenter then worked through a quick narrative that explained that in the course of regular duties as Red Cross Disaster Volunteers, all five are present. Those present had numerous examples of social situations that occurred on duty that had potential to escalate.

Stay safe everyone.
