Work Practice Controls

Work practice controls are an addition to the engineering controls when those are not completely protective. OSHA recommends the following work practice controls:
  • State clearly to patients, clients, and employees that violence will not be tolerated or permitted
  • Establish liaison with local police and state prosecutors
  • Require employees to report all assaults and threats
  • Set up trained response teams to respond to emergencies
  • Track clients with a known history of violence
