Workplace Violence Puts Everyone At Risk

Workplace Violence Regulations

The California Nurses Association (CNA) sponsored S.B. 1299 in response to workplace violence as a serious occupational hazard for registered nurses and other healthcare workers. S.B. 1299 became law in 2014 and directed Cal/OSHA to develop a comprehensive workplace violence prevention standard for hospitals and other healthcare settings. CNA members provided significant testimony during the rulemaking process, which enabled Cal/OSHA to develop comprehensive regulations that are a model for the nation.
