Employers have an overall duty to take every reasonable precaution to protect workers’ health and safety. The easiest way to fulfill this duty is to recognize, evaluate and control workplace threats, and provide essential training to all employees. The Occupational Health and Safety Act specifically sets out of the role and responsibilities of employers with respect to workplace violence and harassment. There are strict standards that employers are obligated to follow to promote and protect workers, including developing and implementing policies and programs. Creating a workplace policy or statement is an effective way to orchestrate the company’s commitment to maintaining and protecting worker health and safety.
