SEIU Local 121RN and the SEIU Nurse Alliance of California are working on a campaign to get a Healthcare Provider Workplace Violence Prevention Standard adopted by Cal/OSHA (the government agency in California charged with protecting workers from health and safety hazards on the job). Healthcare workers experience violence on the job at staggering levels compared to workers in other industries. Violence in the healthcare industry is both predictable and preventable and that is why we are pushing for a standard that is enforceable by Cal/OSHA.
Regardless of whether or not you live in California, sign on to our petition to show your support for this campaign to make our workplaces safer for healthcare workers and our patients.
After you’ve signed, please share the link with your co-workers, friends, and family.
