WORKPLACE VIOLENCE PREVENTION
NEW LAW IN EFFECT JANUARY 4TH, 2024
NEW NYS LAW FOR PUBLIC EMPLOYERS
Title 12 of the New York State Code of Rules & Regulations Part 800.6
(12 NYCRR 800.6)
Workplace Violence can occur at any place and time when CSEA members provide a public service.
Violence can come from:
1. Random individuals intent on committing a crime.
2. People to whom we provide services.
4. Personal relationships.
The effects of workplace violence range from death and serious physical harm to threats, fear, and intimidation.
All CSEA members are at risk of workplace violence. However, certain jobs or tasks place members at
greater risk, such as working with prison inmates, the mentally ill, the cognitively disabled, and even the
general public when they are inconvenienced, are given bad news, or are just having a bad day.
At Counteractive Solutions, we specialize in assisting businesses like yours in achieving compliance with these requirements. Let us help you navigate and implement the necessary measures for full compliance with the new law.
ALL public employers are required to develop and implement a Workplace Violence Prevention Program and post a Workplace Violence Policy Statement reminding all workers about the program and how to report incidents. The regulation requires that the program be developed in cooperation with the union to ensure all possible causes are identified and controlled.
Employers must give the authorized employee representative an opportunity to participate in the evaluation of the physical work environment, development of the written program, and annual review of incident reports.
• Employers must perform a risk evaluation and determination of the workplace to determine the magnitude of risk of workplace violence.
• Employers must implement control methods to minimize or eliminate the risk factors identified.
• Employers must establish a reporting system for workplace violence incidents and maintain reports for annual program evaluation.
• Employers must provide information and annual training for employees on the risk factors in the workplace, hazard control methods, the details of the written workplace violence prevention program and regulatory requirements.
• Employers, with more than 20 employees, must create a written program including the risk factors identified, the control methods that will be utilized, the incident reporting system and an outline or lesson plan for training employees.
• If there are patterns of violence that involve criminal conduct, the employer must attempt to develop a protocol with local law enforcement.
• Each year, the employer must conduct an annual program review with employee representatives.
