Preventing Workplace Violence: Codes of Practice : NS Labour and Advanced Education, Health and Safety

The small retail store, retail gas, and taxi services sectors have all been targets of violence in recent years. The Occupational Health and Safety division has developed workplace violence prevention Codes of Practice for these specific workplaces. The Codes of Practice are found in the Guides below. These Codes of Practice are an easy way for businesses to complete their violence prevention plans. Businesses can choose to adopt the appropriate Code of Practice, OR take reasonable measures of their own choosing to prevent violence. Either option helps fulfil their obligation to have a violence prevention plan in place by April 1, 2008.
