OSHAlogoFedOSHA set up a new webpage with tools to help prevent workplace violence in healthcare settings, which includes its violence prevention guidance published earlier in the year.

Many now know that California will be the first state in the country to soon have an enforceable workplace violence prevention regulation covering healthcare workers, and while that is groovy as heck, the brutal and often buried fact is that Cal/OSHA currently has one worksite inspector to every 162,000 California workers. Many are advocating to change those numbers, others are just focusing on getting more and more regulations — it is all good work if/when it aims to help keep workers safe and alive on the job.
