Violence Prevention



  • Acts of violence are the second leading cause of workplace injury for long-term care workers in BC, representing 2,367 cases, or 16 percent of all injuries over the past five years. In home care and community health support, it’s the sixth leading cause of workplace injury.
  • Violence in the workplace is a complex issue requiring a multi-faceted response. By investing in violence prevention training and strategies, we can make workplaces safer for workers and improve the quality of care for residents and clients.
