Anti-Violence in the Workplace

This policy applies equally to all employees, contractors, public visitors, clients and anyone else whom employees encounter during work.

Policy Elements:
“Workplace violence” refers to physical acts of violence or threats to harm a person or property. Abusive behaviors, whether verbal, psychological or physical, are also considered violence. More specifically:
• Verbal abuse can be using unwelcome, embarrassing, offensive, threatening or degrading language.
• Psychological abuse is an act which provokes fear or diminishes a person’s dignity or self-esteem.
• Sexual abuse is any unwelcome verbal or physical assault.

We can’t always predict violent acts, but we ask managers and team members to be vigilant. Report any concerns or violent acts as soon as possible. Examples of violent behavior among co workers include but are not limited to:
• Intimidating or bullying others
• Abusive language
• Physical assault
• Threatening behavior
• Concealing or using a weapon
• Sexual or racial harassment
