Prevent Workplace Violence

Add your name: Sign the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act (HR 1195) into law.

We are proud to support Representative Joe Courtney (CT-02)’s newest bill, the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act (HR 1195). The bill was introduced in Congress in late February 2021 with bipartisan support.

Passing this bill will be a critical first step in working to end workplace violence — a critical priority in the health care industry, where the workforce faces more instances of workplace violence than any other sector in the American economy.

Nurses and health care workers have been fighting to have their safety taken seriously while they work to ensure the safety and health of others for many years. The time is NOW to take a stand against workplace violence and demand that health care and social service employers provide the necessary preventions needed to end workplace violence.

Add your name to our petition calling on Congress to protect nurses and health care workers by passing the Workplace Violence Prevention For Health Care and Social Service Workers Act.
