Workplace violence prevention and control programs include specific engineering and work practice controls to address identified hazards. The tools listed in the Retail/Convenience Store Security: Engineering Controls and Workplace Adaptation mobile app are not intended to be a “one-size-fits-all” prescription. No single control will protect employees. To provide effective deterrents to violence, the employer may wish to use a combination of controls in relation to the hazards identified through the hazard analysis. Engineering controls remove the hazard from the workplace or create a barrier between the worker and the hazard. The physical changes in the workplace can help reduce violence-related risks or hazards in retail establishments.
