Do your staff feel safe at your hospital?

Hospitals are one of the most at-risk workplaces for staff to be exposed to violence and aggression from those who they serve. Up to 90% of all hospital staff will experience some form of violence in the workplace during their career. However, these incidents are significantly underreported in hospitals. In order to ensure the safety and security of staff, more collaboration is necessary to develop preventative and reactive responses to incidents across all hospitals.

The Improving Hospital Safety & Security conference will address the need to promote a better culture of safety in hospitals by breaking staff out of silos and fostering collaboration in safety and security, strengthening strategies to de escalate and prevent incidents proactively and develop staff resilience and mental health.
