Workplace Violence Prevention

Maryland’s hospitals are committed to preventing workplace violence, promoting a culture of safety, and maintaining a safe healing environment for patients, staff, and visitors.

Addressing and Preventing Maryland Workplace Violence

In 2019, the Maryland Hospital Association (MHA) conducted a survey in collaboration with the Workplace Violence Prevention Steering Committee to assess workplace violence incidents and prevention practices in member hospitals. The findings indicated a need for additional resources to address and prevent workplace violence.

The resources on this page include contributions from federal and state agencies, hospitals, and health care regulatory bodies. Hospitals, health systems, and organizations are encouraged to submit their own resources to MHA.
