[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Greenwich 12-28-2016 by L.L. No. 1-2017. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Town of Greenwich’s number one core value is to provide a safe and healthy work environment free from all recognized safety and health hazards. Threats or acts of violence are workplace hazards that are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
The goal of this policy is to ensure that all employees have an opportunity to work in an environment free of violence and to maintain this culture by providing procedures for reporting, investigating, and resolving any threats or acts of violence involving or against our employees. Management will continuously look for and take every reasonable prevention measure possible to ensure that this program protects our employees from all violent behavior.
Upon knowledge of threats or acts of workplace violence, management will take direct and immediate action to prevent any additional threats or violent acts from occurring. Management will investigate thoroughly all reports of threats or acts of violence. The lessons learned will be shared as well as utilized to improve our Workplace Violence Prevention Program. We will update our program whenever deficiencies are found, but no less than annually.
If you feel that you have been a target of workplace violence, report it immediately to your supervisor, department head, Personnel Officer, or Town Supervisor. If you feel that you are in immediate danger, call 911.
