  • The International Labour Organization (ILO) website has many sector specific resources on violence and stress - for example on Violence at work in hotels, catering and tourism and Violence and Stress in education workplaces.
  • From the UK's HSE:  Managing violence in retail and licensed premises toolkit a free web-based kit is designed to help employers in retail and licensed premises tackle the problem of work-related violence. While primarily aimed at large employers in the sector, an accompanying summary leaflet [downloads as a pdf ] is available for smaller organisations. The toolkit incorporates a wide number of examples of good practice and control measures used to reduce the risk of violence in the retail and licensed sectors.
  • From WorkSafeBC:
    The OHS and Workers Compensation regulator from Canada's British Columbia has released an  web workbook for both employers and workers: How to prevent violence in the workplace [pdf]. Of course, any reference to legislation is to Canadian legislation.
  • From the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, resources from the Healthy Workplaces website: Preventing Third Party Violence in Commerce: A Toolkit.
