Employers are required to record information about each workplace violence incident in a Violent Incident Log. The log must omit personal identifying information (of any person involved in the incident) and include specific information about the incident like a detailed description of what happened, whether law enforcement was contacted, and whether actions were taken to protect employees from a continuing threat. Employers must also maintain records of training, workplace violence hazard identification, and violent incidents.
