Hazardous Work Environments and Managing Risk

OSHA defines a hazard as “the potential for harm.”1 Under OSHA’s General Duty Clause, employers are required to ensure that their job sites are “free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm” to workers.2 Managing the range and complexity of hazards in the modern workplace can present a daunting challenge to safety professionals.

One of the other rulings which CA courts have provided is an Active Shooter capability is considered a 'hazard' and thusly, should be given as training for your employees. If you don't, and an active shooter ocurrs on your premesis, YOU will not only incur possible penalties and fines from OSHA, but you could also be held liable both civilly and criminally.

It is time to take this all seriously and ALL employees need to be trained. In the attached article, you can review the top 10 OSHA most cited issues.
