In collaboration with Andrew Uttley Associate | Employment Capsticks Solicitors LLP
Workplace violence in a Healthcare setting. What can we do?
The year on year increase in violence against staff working in healthcare and the emergency services is a significant concern for both workers and employers. Press coverage and the NHS Staff Survey confirm that assaults against those working in healthcare organisations, fire and rescue services and ambulance trusts are on the rise and there is recognition that more needs to be done to protect workers.
HPMA with Capsticks Solicitors offers a short but interactive webinar discussing some of the considerations employers need to address when dealing with these issues, including:
- Violence at work
- Violence in the NHS context
- Protecting employees
- NHS Violence Reduction Strategy
- The Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Act
- Vicarious liability
- Steps to protect organisations
The session will be held on the 10th September 2020, starting at 10:30am and will last for approximately 60 minutes with 30 minutes for questions at the end. Delegates can submit questions in advance or add them during the webinar. If you would like to submit a question in advance, please submit it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
