Prevention of Violence in the Workplace

Workplace violence can take the form of physical aggression such as hitting, biting or kicking. It also includes verbal threats, swearing, name calling and bullying.

Violence is not part of anyone’s job and the repercussions of workers being exposed to violence can be devastating, affecting their physical and mental health as well as their job satisfaction. For employers, it can result in reduced productivity and financial losses.

This course is intended to assist Joint OH&S Committees to identify potential hazards in the workplace, conduct a risk assessment and recommend corrective actions as they pertain to workplace violence. Participants will have the opportunity to develop a plan for violence prevention.

In this course participants will:

  • Learn the requirements of health and safety legislation pertaining to implementing a violence prevention program.
  • Learn how to identify and assess violent incidents and make recommendations for corrective solutions.
  • Develop an outline for a workplace violence prevention program.

Audience: OH&S Committee Members, Managers, Worker Representatives and Supervisors.

*Federal OH&S Legislation specific version and Healthcare version available on request.
