Title: Worksite Analysis Records Review and Analysis
Type: Text and Picture Slide
Speaker Notes: The review should include the OSHA Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses (OSHA 300), if the employer is required to maintain one. In addition, worker and police reports of incidents or near-incidents of assaults or aggressive behavior should be examined to identify and analyze trends in assaults relative to particular job titles; date and time of day.
Through this analysis, an employer can identify the frequency and severity of incidents to establish a baseline for measuring improvement.
Employers with more than one store or worksite may review each location’s history of violence.
To learn about trends in the community or industry, an employer may contact local businesses, trade associations, police departments and community and civic groups.
An employer should use several years of data, if possible, to gain a clear understanding of the existing trends.
