Noting that health care workers are more than four times more likely than other employees to experience workplace violence, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has launched a new website to help health care providers curtail violence at work.

Visit it at www.osha.gov/dsg/hospitals/workplace_violence.html. The site offers links to resources on establishing a violence prevention program and accompanying training.

The site also includes information about violence-prevention legal requirements in various states.

Note: Health care employers should review OSHA publications and other resources to determine if their workplace safety programs are sufficient to protect employees and the public.
