Workplace Violence Incident Report Form
All threats of violence must be taken seriously and reported by employees to their supervisors immediately. The County requires that the supervisor/manager complete the form when a violent act or threat of violence occurs in the workplace as outlined in the Workplace Violence Prevention Policy.
CA DMV Add/Delete Form
In addition to DOT requirement for “safety sensitive positions”, the Safety Department recommends that all employees driving a County vehicle and/or transporting clients, patients, consumers or resident etc. be enrolled into the CA DMV Employer Pull Notice Program (EPN).
The EPN program provides the County with a means of promoting driver safety through the on-going review of driver’s records. The EPN program automatically generates a driver record when any of the following actions/activities occurs:
1. Upon enrollment of driver in the EPN program.
2. Annually from the date of enrollment or 12 months from the last action/activity printout.
3. When a driver has any of the following actions/activities added to his/her driver record:
- Failure to Appear
- Driver License Suspensions or Revocations
- Any other actions taken against the driving privilege
Authorization for Release of Driver Record Information The County requires that a signed authorization from the employee accompany EPN enrollment. Participation in the program is part of the County’s effort to promote driver safety and to determine an employee’s eligibility as a licensed driver for the County.
