AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

- Recognize the impact of workplace violence on employee retention
- Pinpoint how your agency can reduce workplace violence
The first thing that comes to mind for most people at the mention of workplace violence is an active shooter situation. However, the issue of workplace violence is much broader than this one type of extreme incident. Most cases are verbal or physical attacks that rarely involve a weapon. A National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health study in 2007 indicated that 20% of home health aides reported verbal abuse in the past year and 5% reported threats of violence. It is also believed that many threats or violent acts go unreported.
This webinar will define workplace violence and delve into the impact of aggression and violent threats on employees. It will also address the agency’s role in reducing workplace violence, and why employees need to report it.
THIS WEBINAR WILL BENEFIT THE FOLLOWING AGENCIES:
- Home Health
- Home Care
