House Bill 1931 contained new requirements for workplace violence prevention efforts in health care settings. The legislation expanded on existing requirements for workplace violence prevention planning and training. Workplace violence prevention is a priority for Washington State hospitals. WSHA worked collaboratively with proponents of the law to ensure that the changes and new requirements reflect current best practices. WSHA’s advocacy resulted in a more refined definition of workplace violence and flexible training requirements so that hospitals can focus their efforts on areas of risk that will have a meaningful impact on preventing workplace violence for health care workers. The full rundown of the new requirements is available on the WSHA website.
