Workplace Violence Risks and Vulnerabilities

Abstract

Workplace violence is becoming the highest risk for injury or death on the job. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's General Duty Clause, employers shall furnish each employee a place of employment which is free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees. In this chapter we will discuss workplace violence indicators, warning signs, and, most important, how to assess your workplace for risks and vulnerabilities related to violence. Also included is information on establishing a threat assessment team, prevention strategies, training, and liability reduction considerations.
