The Joint Commission and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)* present… Workplace Violence Prevention: Implementing Strategies for Safer Healthcare Organizations”

This webinar will offer an opportunity to learn from The Joint Commission and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in a review of OSHA’s 2015 Guidelines for Preventing Workplace Violence for Healthcare and Social Service Workers, as well as The Joint Commission’s standards related to Workplace Violence (WPV) prevention. The most recent Joint Commission Sentinel Event Alert on this topic published in April 2018, and it focused on physical and verbal violence against healthcare workers. Learn from work done by OSHA and The Joint Commission, as well as the Department of Family Medicine at Michigan State University. The presenter will describe how a multi-hospital, tailored intervention study effectively reduced violent events, as well as ways to apply this approach to your organization.

Learning Objectives: At the end of this session, participants will be able to…

  1. Identify factors that can contribute to potential WPV in a healthcare setting.
  2. Understand key components of a WPV prevention program.
  3. Develop strategies for implementing a WPV prevention program.

For more than 20 years, OSHA and The Joint Commission have collaborated to help organizations comply with existing requirements, as well as provide information, guidance and access to training resources. Recently, the OSHA Alliance has focused on the growing problem of WPV, a significant hazard in the healthcare industry.
