There is increasing pressure on all workplaces to assess certain behaviors, language, attitudes, and gestures that may appear intimidating, harassing, threatening, or unsafe to others. 

All members of the Johns Hopkins community are responsible for creating and maintaining a safe workplace and academic environment. In order to reaffirm their commitment to a safe working and learning environment, Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System have adopted policies that call for zero tolerance of violent behavior, threats, and intimidation.

Johns Hopkins will not permit employment-based retaliation against anyone who, in good faith, brings a complaint of workplace violence or who speaks as a witness in the investigation of a complaint of workplace violence.
