Retail/Convenience Store Security: Engineering Controls and Workplace Adaptation Mobile App
After assessing violence hazards, the next step is to develop measures to protect employees from the identified risks of injury and violent acts.
How does it work?
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.
