Workplace Violence


Violence. Not Part of the Job.

Violence in BC health care facilities has reached shocking levels, with nurses on the front line. Nurses are now more likely than law enforcement and security workers to have a violent injury claim. On average 26 nurses a month in BC suffer a violent injury at work. REA​D MO​​RE​​​​
