USDA: Animal Care Inspection- Workplace Violence Mobile App
"The Animal Care Inspection - Workplace Violence mobile app was designed to help protect the health and well-being of animal care inspection professionals.
How does it work?
Designed to be used when evaluating potential hazards and occupational safety, the animal care inspections and workplace violence app helps inspectors stay safe and know their rights when conducting animal protection and worker safety inspections. The app is suitable for inspections of laboratory animal testing facilities, dairy farms, pet health care facilities and other areas where animals are cared for.
It is illegal for any licensee, applicant, research facility representative or other person to interfere with, threaten, abuse, or harass animal welfare inspectors in the course of carrying out their duties. This includes making threats against workplace health and safety, physical threats to the individual and public safety, and taking other aggressive actions against animal protection efforts. "
