Level 2 Award in Preventing Violence in the Workplace

Preventing Violence in the Workplace. Workplace violence has become a serious issue for employers throughout the U.K. Recently, the Court of Appeal has affirmed that where an employee inflicts violence on another employee or third party, the vicarious liability of the employer for the employee’s violent act will depend on the closeness of the violent act to the employee’s employment. Equally, the Health and Safety at Work Etc Act 1974 states that “It shall be the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees.”

This qualification does not involve any contact with aggressors and is therefore aimed at those that may need to deal with aggressive individuals, but are unlikely to face violence as a significant risk. The qualification is not suitable for those that are likely to have to break away or physically intervene with violent individuals.
