The Health and Safety Executives definition of work-related violence is:

A Directors Briefing - short, clear summary covering significant areas of the topic, including responsibility, competence and duty of care
Employee Factsheets - clear, concise information concerning identifying, managing and controlling the risks and hazards faced with incidents of work related violence.
This resource pack is the first in a series of new content to be added to the Barbour service.

These packs are just one of the many resources available from Barbour covering a range of key topic areas.
