Webcast: Protecting Your Staff from Physical Harm
December 4th, 2019 at 1:00 PM ET
Details
Every day healthcare workers face potentially unsafe situations, running the gamut from falls and other workplace accidents to violence and verbal abuse. Many clinicians would not think twice about putting their own health and safety at risk to help a patient, but the risks associated with this dedication also add significant stress and can contribute to physician and nurse burnout. Data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) shows that healthcare workers are four times more likely to experience workplace violence than workers in the public sector. In the event of a workplace accident or violence, it’s important that workers can communicate quickly to get the help they need.

During this session, we will cover:

  • Safety risks and hazards for clinical and facility staff today
  • How staff leadership can work together to solve the problem
  • The importance of helping staff understand the problem
  • Combining technology and staff awareness to drive a safer working environment
