Training - Workplace Violence Awareness and Prevention
No one should feel frightened or threatened in the workplace. Unfortunately, two million American workers are victims of workplace violence every year1. In an effort to minimize incidents, California under Cal/OSHA Title 8 Section 3342, enacted a violence protection law that requires employers in operations identified as healthcare facilities to educate and train their employers on workplace violence prevention, but all INDUSTRIES and ORGAINIZATIONS should train on Workplace Violence
On April 1, 2017, California under Cal/OSHA Title 8, Section 3342 (f)(1)(c) stated: “Training not given in person shall fulfill all the subject matter requirements of subsection (f)(1) and shall provide for interactive questions to be answered within one business day by a person knowledgeable about the employer's workplace violence prevention plan.” In other words, the interactive training doesn’t have to be completed in person. Additionally, once the course is completed, employees have one day to complete follow-up questions.
