Implement a Workplace Violence Policy

Key Points

  • Drafting a workplace violence policy is the first step in preventing violence. The policy should clearly indicate zero tolerance for violence in the workplace and include a clear complaint procedure for reporting incidents of violence.
  • A comprehensive workplace violence policy should also include the procedures to be taken when an incident of violence occurs.
  • All employees should be trained on what constitutes violence in the workplace and about the employer's applicable policies and procedures regarding its workplace violence program.
