COMBATING WORKPLACE VIOLENCE: GUIDELINES FOR EMPLOYERS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT

The purpose of this document is to provide employers and law enforcement with guidelines on the steps they should consider to help reduce certain workplace violence hazards. The document focuses on violence committed by non-strangers (e.g., coworkers, bosses, clients, domestic partners) within a common worksite. The guidelines for employers and police departments are presented in separate sections. They can be used as benchmarks for helping assess the state of an organization's current policies and practices. Not every recommendation may be appropriate for all organizations. Case examples and other illustrative information are included. In addition, a model policy on workplace violence is offered for possible use by organizations without existing policies.
