WPV_rally_FB_pic_250x250Violence and intimidation are NOT part of the job. Healthcare workers experience violence on the job at staggering levels compared to workers in other industries. In California, we have an important opportunity to strengthen protections for these workers - and you can help!

Based on data collected by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), in 2013 in the U.S. there were more than 26,000 workplace injuries related to violence, including close to 400 deaths. Over 70% of violent assaults in the workplace happened in the healthcare and social service industries. However, there is no federal workplace standard, and no California standard, for preventing workplace violence.
