"The guide may be used to assist public employers and public employees in understanding key steps in establishing a public employer WVPP. A critical starting point is establishing a process that includes the key stakeholders in an agency, reviewing requirements in the law and draft regulations, evaluating existing agency programs, and then working to address gaps identified in the review. This guidebook is designed to assist public employers and public employee union leaders so that they can build programs that comply with the law and beyond that, reduce injuries, costs, and associated negative impacts on agency operations that are caused by workplace violence. The guide is a tool to help in tailoring programs to the actual needs and conditions of different types of public employment covered by the law. Different interventions should be developed based on the type of work that is being performed and type of exposures that are experienced. Public employees work in field service, institutional, and administrative settings located in rural, suburban, and urban areas. Conducting a comprehensive risk assessment, with input from those at risk, is critical to developing an effective WVPP."
