Are common myths about workplace violence impeding employee safety?
Workplace violence touches everyone. The concern for safety and the threat of violence affects the emotional stability and productivity of our employees, as well as an organization's profitability. While the incidence of actual injuries at work is relatively low, intentional acts and accidents affect the lives of thousands of innocent citizens each year. This program provides a practical methodology for assessing the risk of future violence in known subjects and discusses practical ways to assess and manage this risk.

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.
