Why Do I Need Workplace Violence Prevention Safety Training?
OSHA doesn’t have a specific standard for violence in the workplace. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”
Likewise, Part XX of the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations – Violence Prevention in the Work Place gives steps employers must implement in order to protect their employees against violence in the workplace, and ensure they have recourse if they are subjected to violence. Employers who do not take steps to prevent or abate a recognized violence hazard in the workplace can be cited.
Because of these requirements, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with violence in the workplace. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is workplace violence?
Any behavior that causes anxiety, fear, and a climate of distrust in your workplace is part of workplace violence. This includes any time someone is abused, threatened, intimidated, or assaulted in their place of employment.
What are the four types of workplace violence?
1) Personal – the instigator has a personal rather than a business relationship with the victim
2) Client – the instigator is a client of the business
3) Worker-on-worker – the instigator is an employee who threatens another employee
4) Criminal intent – the instigator is committing a crime at the business location
Can an employer predict or anticipate workplace violence?
Yes. The idea that someone “just snapped” without warning is a myth. Workplace violence is not random or unpredictable. In most cases, there are warning signs that lead up to an act of violence, which means you can predict and prevent violence in your workplace.
How can employers protect employees from workplace violence?
The best protection employers can offer is to establish a zero-tolerance policy toward workplace violence. All employees should know the policy and understand the procedures for reporting violence. Any claims should be investigated and remedied right away.
