Workplace Violence Reduction Immersion Project
Workplace violence is defined by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health as “violent acts, including physical assaults and threats of assault, directed toward persons at work or on duty.”
MHA has secured funding for the Workplace Violence Reduction Immersion Project to provide programmatic support and training related to workplace violence to participating hospitals at no cost, with the exception of staff time for training.
The Workplace Violence Reduction Immersion Project aims to:
- Provide a structured, time-limited initiative focused on implementing evidence-based practices to achieve an identified outcome. Projects track progress by supporting implementation of project work, coordinating data collection and engaging participants through education, training and shared learning.
- Train and empower front-line care providers in use of verbal de-escalation and safe restraint techniques to reduce adverse encounters related to workplace violence.
- Increase the number of events mitigated through de-escalation techniques alone, while increasing the overall safety of the health care workplace environment.
