Workplace Violence Prevention Plans | Are you prepared for July 1, 2024?

Workplace safety is paramount in all industries, including agriculture, given the recent uptick in workplace violence incidents. The introduction of the Workplace Violence Prevention Plan (WVPP) for agricultural workplaces as of July 1, 2024, marks a significant shift towards ensuring the safety and security of agricultural workers.

Employers at farms, orchards, vineyards, and other agricultural settings will now be required to establish, implement, and maintain a comprehensive Workplace Violence Prevention Plan (WVPP). 

This mandate emphasizes the crucial role that proactive measures play in safeguarding employees’ well-being. Employers are now tasked with establishing, implementing, and maintaining comprehensive WVPPs to create a safe working environment. In light of this regulatory shift, it’s crucial for employers to recognize the importance of having not only an effective written Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) but also specific safety and health programs tailored to their operations.

To support employers in meeting these new requirements, AgSafe is hosting an informative webinar on Workplace Violence Prevention Plans. Scheduled from 9:00 a. m. to 10:30 a. m. PST, this session will provide invaluable insights into developing effective prevention strategies aligned with regulatory expectations.

By fostering a culture of safety through robust prevention plans and proactive measures, employers demonstrate their commitment to employee welfare while enhancing organizational resilience. Prioritizing safety discussions and compliance not only fulfills legal obligations but also upholds ethical responsibilities towards workers’ well-being within the agricultural sector.

AgSafe supports both employees and organizations in their commitment to safety; this dedication is evident in this workshop.
