Communicating the Risk of Violence: A Flagging Program Handbook for Maximizing Preventative Care
Legislative changes in Saskatchewan surrounding workplace violence require employers to provide all workers at risk with information (including personal information) about a person with a history of violence. Workplaces, in turn, must adopt effective prevention strategies. One such strategy is a flagging-alert program to communicate violence-related risks to healthcare teams. By taking this kind of proactive approach to managing violent, aggressive and responsive behaviours, we can reduce the risk of harm to workers while providing patients with the best possible care.
SASWH is currently investing in aligning materials and resources to the Saskatchewan legislative requirements. Access to theseViolence Aggression and Responsive Behaviour toolsare being made available through the SASWH website atwww.saswh.ca.
