KEEPING EMPLOYEES SAFE:
Workplace Violence Prevention Strategies
Right now, someone in your organization is experiencing workplace violence. She is not speaking up and you don’t know about it.
That’s not okay.
Beyond the unacceptable harm and suffering that this employee is facing, your organization is at risk too.
Recently, in their April 2018 Sentinel Alert, The Joint Commission encouraged healthcare organizations to clearly define workplace violence, teach employees how to identify at risk patients earlier, and to adopt a simple reporting system.
Healthcare organizations, therefore, have a responsibility to implement and maintain an effective workplace violence prevention program to keep their employees safe.
This workshop presents a multilevel approach to prevent and reduce incidents of workplace violence. From the individual employee to unit, organization, community, and governmental actions, participants will learn prevention and intervention strategies to stop the violence and keep their employees safe.
Participants will be able to…
- Identify 5 ways the individual employee can promote personal safety.
- List 3 strategies a unit can employ to prevent escalation of an agitated visitor or patient.
- Describe 5 actions an organization can take to comply with The Joint Commission recommendations to reduce workplace violence.
Format – This program can be delivered as a ½ day or full day workshop
