Why do I need workplace violence prevention training?

OSHA doesn’t have a specific standard for violence in the workplace. However, under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.”

Likewise, Part XX of the Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations – Violence Prevention in the Work Place gives steps employers must implement in order to protect their employees against violence in the workplace, and ensure they have recourse if they are subjected to violence. Employers who do not take steps to prevent or abate a recognized violence hazard in the workplace can be cited.

Because of these requirements, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with violence in the workplace. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.
