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.
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.
