Conflict Management 

 

Work place violence is an issue in all businesses and services where staff may face emotionally charged situations. The Health and Safety Executive defines workplace violence as "Any incident in which an employee is abused, threatened or assaulted in circumstances relating to work". Where the risk is foreseeable a legal duty of care exists on both the employer and employee to minimise this risk by providing safe guidance, procedures and appropriate training.
