Nova Scotia's Violence in the Workplace regulations prescribe specific requirements to do a risk assessment and implement a workplace violence prevention plan. A Provincial working group developed Steps for Safety- Prevention of Workplace Violence as a consolidated resource of the best practices and tools for use in health care and community services.
There are 6 steps in the program:
Step 1: Program Review & Perception Survey
Step 2: Leadership & Risk Assessment
Step 3: Policies & Procedures
Step 4: Reporting, Investigating & Documenting
Step 5: Education & Awareness
Step 6: Best Practices (coming soon)
To date WCB and our partners at AWARE NS have offered 3 workshops around the Province but we know some of you are finding it challenging to get started in implementing the program.
JOIN us, to have a "hands on" session to assess where you are and to help support you moving forward.
