Workplace Violence

Workplace violence refers to any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other aggressive behavior that occurs within the workplace, creating a risk to employee safety and well-being. HR professionals play a critical role in preventing and addressing workplace violence by establishing policies, conducting training, and promoting a culture of respect and conflict resolution. They are responsible for implementing security measures, conducting investigations, and offering support to victims. Addressing workplace violence is essential for maintaining a safe and secure work environment, protecting employees’ physical and mental health, and complying with legal requirements, ultimately contributing to a harmonious and productive workplace.
