Sierra HR Partners is Ready to Prepare Your Customized Workplace Violence Prevention Program
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), workplace violence is the second leading cause of fatal occupational injuries in the United States, affecting nearly 2 million American workers annually. In September 2023, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 553 as a step in addressing workplace violence by requiring employers to create and maintain protections for employees while at work.
Effective July 1, 2024, the majority of employers in California must implement or enhance their Violence Prevention Plan to be sure it includes the following:
  • The names of persons responsible for implementing the Workplace Violence Prevention Plan (WVPP.)
  • Effective procedures for employee involvement in developing and implementing the plan.
  • Procedures for the employer to handle and respond to reports of workplace violence.
  • Prohibitions against employee retaliation.
  • Employee workplace violence training and communication.
  • Emergency response procedures.
  • Workplace violence hazard assessments.
  • A Violent Incident Log  – which must include information on every workplace violence incident, even if the incident did not result in injury.
Sierra HR Partners is here to help! We have developed a thorough Workplace Violence Prevention Plan that covers all Cal/OSHA-required topics and can be customized for your unique workplace environment. The plan document also includes several tools to help you implement your safety program including a Hazard Assessment Checklist, Incident Report Log, and a Training Roster. The cost for this customized plan is $500.
If you would like Sierra HR Partners to prepare your customized WVPP, please complete our Workplace Violence Prevention Plan Questionnaire.
