According to OSHA, from 2002 to 2013, the rate of serious workplace violence incidents was more than four times greater in healthcare than in private industry.
Published in October 2015, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics 2014 survey of Occupational Injuries & Illnesses indicates that healthcare and social services tallied the most workplace injury cases and lost time days among all industry sectors. Many of these incidents are caused by patient-on-healthcare worker or worker-to-worker violent acts and bullying. Inspired by these trends, OSHA has increased their national focus on healthcare and workplace violence prevention inspections and citations.
During this presentation, our expert will lead attendees through the updated OSHA Workplace Violence Prevention Guidelines and review the newly produced prevention tools available.
