how can employees protect themselves?

19 March 2008

There is no guarantee that an employee will not become a victim to workplace violence. To reduce the odds of this type of incident follow and train employees in these steps:

• Notify management or a supervisor of any concerns about safety, security, and report all incidents in writing immediately.

• Learn to recognize and avoid unsafe situations by attending training provided by your company.

• Avoid traveling alone into unfamiliar locations that may be dangerous.

• Carry minimal money and valuables, or provide proper security to prevent or minimize the risk of violence.

• Employers may also review the Workplace Violence Prevention Act at your current state or federal OSHA website.
