Weekly poll: Domestic violence in the workplace

By: May 14th, 2012 Email This Post Print This Post

Federal employers will be required to create policies to prevent domestic violence in the workplace. Does your workplace violence prevention program specifically address the threats and effects of domestic violence in the workplace? Take the OSHA Healthcare Advisor Weekly Poll and let us know.

After taking the survey, click here for the results.

Don’t be part of the headlines. Prevent violence in your healthcare facility.
Two of today’s leading security experts will offer strategies to prevent workplace violence in healthcare during the 90-minute webcast Violence in Healthcare: Proven Strategies to Keep Your Facility Safe. They will discuss how you can stay compliant with government regulations, what you can do now to assess high-risk patients, and how to establish a violence prevention plan.For more information or to order, call 800/650-6787 and mention Source Code EOSHAB or visit The HCPro Healthcare Marketplace.


Why would you want to specify this? If the plan & policy addresses violence overall and takes into accounts plans and training, then this is just one element. If we address this seperately then why would we also not want to address coworker violence, gang violence, etc. with a seperate policy. The actions and outcomes should be the same and take into account various scenairos for training but not have detailed individual plans. If you are aware of a coworker that you feel might be subject to a form of domestic violence you might want to discuss with him or her and potential bring your concerns to your manager so the person gets help.
