NY Hazard Abatement Board to Hold Hearings on Workplace Violence Standard

Jonathan Rosen of the Public Employee Federation in NY informs us that at the request of the NY pubic employee unions, the NY State Hazard Abatement Board is holding hearings on a proposed public employee workplace violence prevention standard. They are calling it the "Safety and Security Standard".

According to Rosen, "This is an exciting opportunity to try to get an enforceable standard to prevent workplace violence." The hearing notice can be found here. For more information and a copy of the proposed standard, contact Jonathan here.
