Title: Recommendations for Workplace Violence Prevention Programs in Late-Night Retail Establishments
[Includes OSHA logo at the bottom of the slide.]
Speaker Notes: These recommendations are advisory in nature and informational in content.
It is not a new standard or regulation and do not create any new legal obligations nor alters existing obligations created by OSHA standards or the OSH Act.
Pursuant to the OSH Act, employers must comply with safety and health standards and regulations issued and enforced either by OSHA or by an OSHA-approved State Plan.
These "state plan states" may have standards that address workplace violence. Employers are responsible for following the standards in the states where they have worksites.
Appendix C of the recommendations provides a summary of existing State Plan standards addressing workplace violence. In addition, the Act’s General Duty Clause, Section 5 (a)(1), requires employers to provide their employees with a workplace free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or physical harm.
