Violence Prevention Policy

SafeCare BC’s violence prevention policy templates will supplement existing policies of continuing care providers across the province and guide the establishment of new ones where none currently exists.

The goal is to reduce the risk and rate of injury to continuing care workers, improve workplace safety and create a more positive working environment.

Continuing care workers interact closely with residents and their families, often under difficult circumstances. Residents may act aggressively due to their medical condition (such as dementia status), or the medication they are taking. They may also have a history of violent behaviour, or feel frustrated and angry as a result of their circumstances. Acts of violence and aggression currently account for 11% of injury claims within continuing care1. Violence Prevention Policies can reduce the risk of injury to continuing care workers, improve workplace safety, and create a more positive working environment.
