POA Decision – 2000/10/18-05 – Consolidation of Protection from Violence Policies in the Prevention Manual/Retirement of Fall Protection Policy
The Panel of Administrators approved the consolidation of the policies on Protection from Violence in the Workplace from the Prevention Division Policy and Procedure Manual into the new Prevention Manual. The affected policies are Policies No. 8.88 – 8.96. The effective date for the consolidated policies is December 1, 2000. On that date the consolidated policies became "published policy" and Policies No. 8.88 – 8.96 ceased to be "published policy". The consolidated policies appear in the new Manual format. They continue the substantive requirements of the Policy and Procedure Manual policies, as those requirements existed prior to December 1, 2000, with any wording changes necessary to reflect legislative and regulatory changes since the Policy and Procedure Manual policies were issued. The Panel has also approved the retirement of Policy No. 8.100 relating to the Fall Protection Regulations effective December 1, 2000. The first paragraph of Policy No. 8.100 was considered to be out of date. The second paragraph has been superseded by Item No. D2-111-1 (Assignment of Authority) in the Prevention Manual. The consolidation of the Protection from Violence policies and the retirement of the Fall Protection policy are part of a larger project that will eventually result in all prevention policies being consolidated into the new Prevention Manual or repealed or retired as appropriate.
