Tune in and hear further discussion regarding workplace violence including a summary from a survey being conducted.
Exploring Labor’s Concerns discussed an overview of workplace violence. Although OSHA has no definitive standard on it, the General Duty clause is often referenced.

The issues and opportunities were also presented that explored the various risk factors, educational / professional development opportunities, means of de-escalation as well as possible sanctions to those committing violence in the workplace.
