New Workplace Violence Planning Requirements are coming for Medical Facilities

Effective July 1, 2020 certain medical facilities will have to develop and carry out a plan for the prevention of workplace violence and report incidents of workplace violence to Nevada OSHA. In addition to a written plan, certain medical facilities will be required to make physical modifications to areas that house potentially violent patients and conduct workplace violence training for affected employees. We have created a summary of this new law that includes an overview of the types of facilities, the basic requirements, procedures, training, and reporting for Nevada OSHA that can be downloaded below.
