STEP 3: POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
The next series of Steps will provide a number of templates and resources to address the Workplace Violence Prevention program requirements, commencing with those legislative compliance elements, in an effort to prevent workplace violence. In particular, the Workplace Violence Prevention Statement/Policy and the procedures are designed to address the “significant and unacceptable risks” related to:
- physical aspects of the workplace (e.g. exterior lighting),
- sector of work and activities that workers perform (e.g. dispensing medications, providing care,
- transporting people), and
- conditions of work (e.g. working alone or in isolation, working in congested workspaces).
