6 Tips To Control Workplace Violence In Your Commercial Building

July 23, 2018 by WINNS Services
Violence in the workplace has risen to become apart of the top 5 reasons for workplace deaths. It has become alarming that violence in the workplace is as common as it is, clearly it needs to be better controlled by employers and expressed to employees how important it is not to use or receive violence. It is required that businesses regularly conduct a hazard analysis, have security measures in place, enforce company policies and have written programs which protect employees from workplace violence.

Here are our 6 top tips for controlling violence in the workplace.

  1. Review, or include, your violence prevention/harassment policies regularly (e.g. per quarter or annually). These will be apart of your general health and safety assessments.
  2. Encourage employees to report, document and investigate anything which could breach violence prevention rules.
  3. Have a workplace assessment and employee questionnaire to identify any gaps or worries which should be included in the violence prevention policy.
  4. Review your visitor access protocol as this is often what leads to violence in the workplace. Perhaps investing in a concierge security guard would be best practice for your business as they are able to combine the role of a receptionist and a security guard into one.
  5. Review previous incidents to see where the implemented policies went wrong. This could highlight gaps in the current guidelines.
  6. Make sure your new employees are fully educated on your violence prevention plan and strategy as everyone should be constantly aware of their duties to creating a safe workplace.
