Earlier this year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released a new guidance for preventing workplace violence in healthcare and social service settings. The guidance reflects the variation that exists in different settings, including hospital, residential treatment, non-residential treatment, community care and field work settings. It also incorporates the latest and most effective ways to reduce risk of workplace violence. Although it does not alter or determine compliance responsibilities with OSHA standards and the OSH Act, employers should use this new guidance to review and update their workplace violence prevention programs.
In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of the new OSHA Healthcare and Workplace Violence Prevention Guidance. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective workplace violence prevention programs.
Key topics include:
- Overview of the Guidelines
- Identifying and Assessing Risks of Workplace Violence
- Risk Prevention and Control
- Implementing Violence Prevention Programs
- Management Commitment and Worker Participation
