Workplace Violence Assessment

Workplace violence  includes any written, verbal or physical behavior or incident in which an individual is assaulted, injured, intimidated, threatened, harassed or stalked. These behaviors are unacceptable at OHSU.

If violence is taking place now or when violence appears to be likely:
  • On Marquam Hill call Public Safety at 503-494-4444 and request that "Dr. Strong" come to your area. Tell the dispatcher the exact location. Stay on the line if it is safe to do so. Get yourself and your co-workers to safety.
  • At West Campus call 9-911. Get yourself and your co-workers to safety.

Workplace violence prevention training is available to all OHSU employees. Public Safety can provide an assessment of your work area for workplace violence hazards. 

To schedule an appointment, call Dispatch at 503-494-7744 and ask for the Community Safety Liaison or designee.
