Attacks in the workplace

The Health and Safety Executive define violence at work as "Any incident in which a person is abused, threatened or assaulted in circumstances related to their work." According to The Health and Safety Executive, workers most at risk from workplace violence are those in the following types of jobs:

Employers have a duty of care to protect their employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. This act states that employers are expected to take reasonably practicable steps in order to safeguard their employees against any foreseeable dangers in the workplace, including the risk of them being assaulted at work.

Reasonably practicable steps depends upon the degree of risk that the employee is exposed to on a daily basis and the chances of them coming to some form of physical harm in the process.

Employers are expected to carry out suitable risk assessments for any tasks that their employees may have to undertake throughout their working day. If an employer does not do this then they can be held liable for the failure to minimise the risk of accident or injury in the workplace.
