Workplace violence can take the form of physical aggression such as hitting, biting or kicking. Violence in the workplace also includes verbal threats, swearing, name calling and bullying. Violence is not part of your job and the repercussions for workers can be devastating, affecting their physical and mental health and job satisfaction. For employers, it means reduced productivity and increased losses.
This course is intended to assist Joint OH&S Committees to identify potentially violent hazards in the workplace, conduct a risk assessment and recommend corrective action. Participants will have the opportunity to develop a plan for violence prevention. Read the entire Prevention-of-violence-in-the-workplace- document.
