Overview:    How safe is your healthcare facility from workplace violence? Workplace violence against healthcare workers can be significantly reduced with a comprehensive violence prevention program. This webinar will outline common risk factors for violence, the basics elements of a violence prevention program and strategies for responding to violent events when they occur. The importance of training nurses and other healthcare workers in recognizing and managing aggressive behavior will be emphasized.

This webinar, presented by a recognized expert on workplace violence prevention, will familiarize participants with the ways by which healthcare organizations can ensure physical safety for its employees by preparing in advance.

Why should you Attend: Violence against health workers should never be considered as being acceptable or "just part of the job." Not only is there a negative impact on the psychological and physical well being of health-care staff, but also affects their job motivation. The consequence of violence impacts the quality of care and may lead to major financial losses to a healthcare organization. These may include but are not limited to:

Sanctions and fines from OSHA and other government agencies
Additional difficulties maintaining credentials for the Joint Commission and other credentialing groups
Increased difficulties in hiring and keeping good employees
Higher insurance premiums
Lawsuits by employees and other victims
Lower employee morale
Disruption in operations for extended periods of time for crime scene clean up and investigation

Many factors place healthcare workers above average risk for violence; they care for people with histories of violent behavior, who may be under the influence of drugs, or who may be delirious from medications, narcotics, or a medical condition such as dementia.

Areas Covered in the Session:
Scope and Impact of Workplace Violence in the Healthcare Setting
The Four Types of Workplace Violence and Their Associated Risk Factors
Elements of an Effective Workplace Violence Program
Worksite Hazard Analysis
Universal Precautions for Violence

Who Will Benefit:
Risk Management

Education Professionals
Compliance Professionals
Safety Managers, Directors and Officers
Emergency Management Professionals
Members of the safety team

Safety Sign Colors and International Standards

Colors make a difference to our environment. They help us analyze the surroundings and distinguish between objects. We recognize plants as green and the sky as blue, whereas a frog, for example, can be either green or blue. Deviant colors, in this case blue, warns us about poisonousness. If we detect unusual colors in our food, for example, we associate them with rottenness, which then activates a warning in our mind “Don’t eat!” Colors cause diverse feelings and opinions, and even distinct…See More
