Workplace Violence
Training & Reference Materials Library

Workplace violence has emerged as an important safety and health issue in today's workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) response to the problem of workplace violence in certain industries has been the production of OSHA's guidelines and recommendations to those industries for implementing workplace violence prevention programs.

In 1996, OSHA published Guidelines for Preventing Workplace Violence for Health Care and Social Service Workers. The guidelines are based on OSHA's voluntary generic Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines.

In 1998, OSHA published Recommendations for Workplace Violence Prevention Programs in Late-Night Retail Establishments. The recommendations are based on OSHA's 1989 voluntary generic Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines.
