COMBATING WORKPLACE VIOLENCE: GUIDELINES FOR EMPLOYERS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, each year almost one million individuals become victims of violent crime while working. The purpose of this document is to provide the employers and law enforcement agencies with guidelines on how to reduce workplace violence hazards. The intent is to help the employers better understand the most important steps that can be taken to minimize the impact of workplace violence and threats. The study focuses on violence committed by non-strangers, (e.g., co-workers, bosses, clients, domestic partners) within a common worksite. These guidelines will help police address workplace violence in their communities without overtaxing departmental resources. Employers are encouraged to read the document to gain a better understanding of how police agencies can help combat workplace violence. This document offers a model policy on workplace violence for possible use by organizations without existing policies. The report also provides information on where to get additional information.
