AHA Expresses Concern with the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act (H.R. 1195)

March 23, 2021

AHA expresses concern with the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act (H.R. 1195), a bill that would direct the Secretary of Labor to issue – on an expedited timetable – an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard requiring employers in health care and social services to develop and implement a comprehensive workplace violence prevention plan. America’s hospitals and health systems are committed to a culture of safety for every worker, patient and family member who enters our facilities.
