An official written Workplace Violence Prevention Program
Procedures to control Workplace Violence such as in the case of a known or evident hazardous situation
A risk and hazard assessment for all clients including new clients at time of joining
Specific procedures to be taken in the event of an incident of workplace violence, including incident reports and investigations
These requirements echo the gradual movement over some years, to implement increasingly robust workplace violence rules and laws. Some states like Washington have had these in place since 1999. The latest state however to set out clear directives for the prevention of workplace violence in Healthcare settings is California. Some long term campaigners for these reforms regard the structure and content in Section 3342 Workplace Violence Prevention in Health care CAL/OSHA act as having far reaching impact to healthcare workers beyond the state of California. We’re encouraged to see the developments in protecting employee personal safety in this sector and will be actively tracking it’s progress and remaining committed to a development roadmap that complements and enhances the implementation of Workplace Violence prevention in healthcare…..and indeed beyond.
