MEMORANDUM FOR: REGIONAL ADMINISTRATORS
OSHA DIRECTORATE HEADS
THROUGH: JIM STANLEY
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary
FROM: SUSAN FOX
Special Assistant for Violence in the
Directorate of Technical Support
SUBJECT: Central Repository for Violence in the Workplace
A task force to compile information on violence in the workplace has been
established and this information will reside in a central location so as to
be available to other Agency staff.
In support of these activities, the Technical Data Center (TDC)
(202-219-7500) will be maintaining a file containing reference materials on
violence in the workplace. Materials can be forwarded to TDC, where they
will be cataloged and filed. Since this is not a docket, copyright laws may
preclude TDC from making copies of some of these materials for distribution.
Many journal references have been ordered through the inter-library loan.
As these are received, a bibliographic listing will be made available.
To make the information contained within the file more accessible to other
offices, a database will be put up within OCIS in the next two months and
updated as new materials are received at TDC. For questions on the OCIS
database, call the OCIS help desk (801-487-0680 ext 234).
