Workplace Violence

Workplace violence can encompass a wide range of threatening and violent behaviors occurring in the workplace that can lead to safety concerns for employees, customers, and vendors or other business associates. Although statistically rare, homicide is now the fourth leading cause of fatal occupational injuries. More frequently, workplace violence consists of verbal threats, intimidation and non-fatal physical assaults. But regardless of the degree of violence, this type of behavior is disruptive and must not be tolerated.

Employers have a responsibility under the OSHA General Duty Clause to provide a workplace free from recognized safety hazards, including the threat of workplace violence. Implementing a zero-tolerance policy on workplace violence and then educating employees about this policy lets it be known that you will not allow violence by or directed toward your employees, clients or visitors.

Additionally, several states have implemented laws to address this growing threat. Weapon possession and use, stalking, harassment, and protection orders are some of the issues related to workplace violence that are now regulated by state laws. Display our Workplace Violence poster to make sure all employees know that your company has a zero-tolerance position when it comes to workplace violence, and who they should contact for assistance.
