Workplace Violence Prevention - Health Care and Social Service Workers
Workplace violence has emerged as an important safety and health issue in today's workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) response to the problem of workplace violence in certain industries has been the production of OSHA's guidelines and recommendations to those industries for implementing workplace violence prevention programs.
In 1996, OSHA published Guidelines for Preventing Workplace Violence for Health Care and Social Service Workers. The guidelines are based on OSHA's voluntary generic Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines.
This presentation will provide an overview of the Guidelines for Preventing Workplace Violence for Health Care and Social Service Workers, OSHA 3148.
