Learn how to enforce new nurse safety laws…and earn CEUs while you’re at it!

Workplace Violence Prevention
in Healthcare

There’s a new law in town.

After we won passage of the Healthcare Workplace Violence Prevention Act—SB 1299 in 2014, the California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (OSHSB) was charged with developing strong regulations.

Our Union, SEIU Local 121RN, was instrumental in coming up with final language in this bill designed to protect nurses and healthcare professionals from workplace violence.

The OSHSB unanimously adopted these new regulations on October 20, 2016, a landmark day for nurse safety. These workplace violence regulations for California’s healthcare professionals are the strongest in the nation.

Come learn more about these new protections

—and how to enforce them. (For the full-day class, you can earn CEUs at the same time.)
