New Workplace Violence Prevention Plan Requirements for California Manufacturers

Starting July 1, 2024, manufacturers in California are mandated to establish, implement, and maintain a Workplace Violence Prevention Plan. This new regulation aims to enhance workplace safety and ensure a secure environment for all employees. Key components of this plan include:

  • Prohibiting Employee Retaliation: Ensuring employees can report workplace violence without fear of retaliation.
  • Accepting and Responding to Reports: Establishing procedures to accept and address reports of workplace violence.
  • Employee Training and Communication: Regular training on workplace violence prevention.
  • Emergency Response: Preparing for actual or potential emergencies related to workplace violence.

Important Updates for California Employers

In October 2023, we informed our clients about the new law requiring a Workplace Violence Prevention Plan. As of March 12, Cal/OSHA has provided a Model Template for employers to prepare their plans. Download The Model Template.

Additionally, California has issued updated documents for 2024, which must be provided to all new hires. These include:

  1. PFL-SDI-UI Pamphlet: Updates on Unemployment Benefits, State Disability, and California Paid Family Leave. Download the California’s Programs for the Unemployed document.
  2. Time of Hire Pamphlet: Information regarding Workers’ Compensation. Download the Time of Hire Pamphlet.
