New Healthcare Workplace Safety Posters Available

Assault is not part of our job. It is a crime.

Assault is not part of our job. It is a crime.As healthcare workers across the country, including Michigan, are experiencing a growing rate of incidents of violence, the MHA has developed workplace safety posters for members to display throughout their facilities communicating the consequences of committing physical harm toward healthcare workers or hospital property.

The informational posters are geared toward patients, families and visitors, with a variety of creative options available in two sizes. Complimentary copies of the materials are available to MHA members by request through an online order form.

Through the MHA Keystone Center, the MHA is also assisting hospitals to address violence against healthcare workers through trainings and through the work of the MHA Workplace Safety Collaborative. The MHA also continues to support legislation that would improve protections for healthcare workers and medical volunteers.

Members with questions on legislative efforts should contact Adam Carlson and any questions regarding the posters should be directed to John Karasinski at the MHA.
