Employers are required to document and track incidents of violence that take place in the workplace or on company property. By keeping detailed records of workplace violence, employers can prevent violent incidents and identify warning signs before conflict escalates, and help reduce exposure to dangerous situations. Supervisors can also document actions they take to resolve the situation that resulted in workplace violence, ensuring that legal obligations are fulfilled.
