How can workplace violence hazards be reduced?

In most workplaces where risk factors can be identified, the risk
of assault can be prevented or minimized if employers take
appropriate precautions. One of the best protections employers
can offer their workers is to establish a zero-tolerance policy
toward workplace violence. This policy should cover all workers,
patients, clients, visitors, contractors, and anyone else who
may come in contact with company personnel.

By assessing their worksites, employers can identify methods
for reducing the likelihood of incidents occurring.  OSHA
believes that a well written and implemented Workplace
Violence Prevention Program, combined with engineering
controls, administrative controls and training can reduce the
incidence of workplace violence in both the private sector and
Federal workplaces.

This can be a separate workplace violence prevention program
or can be incorporated into an injury and illness prevention
program, employee handbook, or manual of standard operating
procedures. It is critical to ensure that all workers know the
policy and understand that all claims of workplace violence will
be investigated and remedied promptly. In addition, OSHA
encourages employers to develop additional methods as
necessary to protect employees in high risk industries.

Where can I get information on workers' rights and employers'

This information can help you properly prepare to eliminate or

Who is at risk of
workplace violence?

Nearly 2 million American
workers report having been
victims of workplace violence
each year. Unfortunately,
many more cases go
unreported. The truth is,
workplace violence can strike
anywhere, anytime, and no
one is immune. Research
has identified factors that may
increase the risk of violence
for some workers at certain
worksites. Such factors
include exchanging money
with the public and working
with volatile, unstable people.
Working alone or in isolated
areas may also contribute to
the potential for violence.
Providing services and care,
and working where alcohol is
served may also impact the
likelihood of violence.
Additionally, time of day and
location of work, such as
working late at night or in
areas with high crime rates,
are also risk factors that
should be considered when
addressing issues of
workplace violence. Among
those with higher risk are
workers who exchange
money with the public,
delivery drivers, healthcare
professionals, public service
workers, customer service
agents, law enforcement
personnel, and those who
work alone or in small groups.
