Violence at work is an all too common occurrence. Workers have a right to be safe at work, and employers are required to provide training to workers in order to keep them safe.
Public-facing workers like cashiers, clerks and retail workers face specific risks, but even workers whose workplaces are not public can experience workplace violence.
The training covers:
Some types of workplaces are more likely than others to experience workplace violence, but all workers deserve safe working conditions. Understanding the types of violence, how to respond, and what can be done to prevent it is important for all workers.
Each workplace is different. Understanding how each workplace functions and creating a plan that meets the needs of workers is an important part of workplace violence training. Looking at how the workplace operates, past incidents, understanding worker concerns, and analyzing workplace security are all things that this training covers.
