According to OSHA, workplace harassment is recognized as a hazard in the healthcare industry. This includes physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site.
One of the best protections healthcare employers can provide is an established zero-tolerance policy towards workplace harassment. This covers not only employees and employers, but also patients, clients, and visitors.
An increasing number of healthcare professionals are experiencing mistreatment, harassment, and threats due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the overall rise in social tension. Anti-harassment training is imperative, now more than ever, to promote whistleblowers to come forward when mistreatment is observed. Employees should also feel like they can advocate properly for themselves, which can be touched on in anti-harassment training.
