The Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk-21, Version 3 (WAVR-21) is a 21-item coded instrument for the structured assessment of workplace and campus targeted violence risk. Consisting of both static and dynamic risk factors, the WAVR-21 can be used to reliably identify and assess the risk, frequency, and severity of both homicidal and non-homicidal aggression in work and higher education settings. Relevant behaviors of concern such as stalking, anger problems, menacing behavior, and bullying are also coded, as well as organizational contributors to violence risk. The WAVR-21 may be used by the members of multi-disciplinary threat assessment and management (TAM) teams who typically work in organizations, as well as by risk assessment mental health professionals who consult or conduct formal assessments in work or campus settings. Workplace violence security consultants will also find the WAVR-21 helpful, as will law enforcement professionals who assist the organizations in their communities.
