OSHA Updates Its Guidance on Workplace Violence

 
Wednesday, May 17, 2017
 
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has updated its guidance on workplace violence. The General Duty Clause requires employers to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees. Directive Number CPL 02-01-058, “Enforcement Procedures and Scheduling for Occupational Exposure to Workplace Violence” —which became effective on January 10, 2017 — addresses when hazards created by people (i.e., violent coworker, customer, etc.) violate the General Duty Clause.
