Seyfarth Shaw OSHA practice partner Meagan Newman was quoted recently in an IndustryWeek article discussing workplace violence.

“Every employer should be thinking about the potential for workplace violence and what steps they might take to prevent or address it.” Newman cites to a case where a Texas convenience store in 2012 had a robbery that resulted in the death of a worker. The company/store owner was cited for violating OSHA’s “general duty” clause.

The article offers some recommendations to create a safer workplace.
