#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, September 11, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT), with the #TChat Twitter chat right after from 7-8 pm ET. We remember where we were on 9/11 -- when the unimaginable became a horrific reality, just as the workday began. Last week we talked about how recruiting is marketing, and this week, in honor of 9/11, we're going to talk about workplace violence. The fact is that workplace violence can be any act of physical violence large scale or between two people. It includes threats of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening, disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. Workplace violence can affect or involve employees, visitors, contractors, and other employees. And while the number of workplace homicides has decreased in the past few years, no one can ignore the reality that violence is still a serious issue for our communities, our schools, and our workplaces. Tonight's show is all about having a plan in place before tragic violence occurs. Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guests: Felix P. Nater, Chief Security Consultant, President and Owner of Nater Associates, Ltd., and Thomas Bronack, a Certified Business Recovery Professional (CBRP) from DRII. This will be another important show about keeping the world of work safe and sound, while preparing for the worst.
This week's guest is Shelly Collins, corporate security senior investigator for a major financial institution. Her topic is "Domestic Violence in the Workplace." She'll define domestic violence; offer tips for protecting banks, their employees and customers; and help banks develop their own policies and procedures for dealing with domestic violence in the workplace. Compliance Alliance's Scott Daugherty will present his Compliance Question of the Week.

While we have clear data on murders from gun violence, no one seems to know how many Americans are shot – and survive – every year. In fact, the government’s own numbers seem to conflict on the matter.
How can this be? And why has no one tried to resolve the difference?
Lois Beckett explains that doctors and researchers have been pushing for clear numbers on gun injuries since 1989. “But what’s happened over that time is the politics of gun research, the politics of guns in America, are so divided and so fierce that even the effort to count the number of people injured by guns is incredibly political,” she says.
