H.R. 1195 House passes Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Services Act

The Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Services Act now move to the Senate after passing the House by a 254-166 vote April 16.

 

The number of workplace violence incidents in the healthcare and social services industries is on the rise, and something needs to be done to protect employees in these industries. That’s why Representative Joe Courtney has reintroduced the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act (H.R. 1195). This bill would direct OSHA to issue a standard requiring employers in the healthcare and social services industries to develop and implement workplace violence prevention plans.

 

These plans would help to protect nurses, physicians, social workers, emergency responders, and others who are at risk of being attacked or harmed while on the job. The goal is to make the healthcare and social services industries safer for employees, and this bill is a step in the right direction.
