 Program Overview

Workplace violence touches everyone. It affects the way we think, feel and behave. The concern for safety and the threat of violence affects the emotional stability and productivity of our employees, and ultimately our profitability. Although the incidence of actual injuries while at work is relatively low, intentional acts and accidents affect the lives of thousands of innocent citizens each year. This training will address this problem and reveal what can be done about it. Regardless of one’s organizational responsibilities, every one of us plays a role in violence prevention and workplace safety.

Employers have a moral duty to provide a safe workplace for their employees. They also have statutory obligations under federal and state law to provide and promote a safe and violence-free work  environment. These include the requirements under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and state Workers’ Compensation laws. Employers also have responsibilities to the public. Either vicariously or directly, employers may be liable for the harm brought to others by workplace violence.

This intricate web of statutes, standards, rules, and regulations creates a legal minefield for supervisors and managers. Employers must protect employees and other parties without infringing on anyone’s rights. Rarely has the challenge for employers been greater. Fortunately, there are solutions.
