BENEFITS

In Canada, employers generally have a duty to protect workers from the risk of workplace violence. One approach to addressing this safety hazard is to get a commitment, create a committee composed of both employer and worker representatives, have that committee identify violence risk factors in the environment and develop an appropriate action plan as to those factors, and then implement the plan, monitoring its effectiveness.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

If you want to use the approach discussed above to address violence in your workplace, which is recommended by the IRSST’s Preventing Workplace Violence website, use this timeline to set deadlines for each step of the implementation process and document your progress as to each step.
