Krystina Bisig started this petition to Senator Patty Murray and

Help pass the Workplace Violence Prevention for Health Care and Social Service Workers Act (H.R. 1195) along to the Senate. This landmark legislation would require the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to create a national standard for Healthcare employers, mandating them to develop and implement a comprehensive workplace violence prevention plan based on guidelines published by OSHA in 2015.  If passed by the Senate, this bill would then be sent to President Biden to be signed into law. This legislation is an incredible moment for health care workers who have long faced threats of violence on the job. It would also place a significant new burden on health care employers as well as social service workers who are also on line. With recent times of COVID these workers need all the support they can get. 

This act will help benefit those who are currently on line working for us every day. As well as insuring their safety while they do it. This applies to health care workers as well as Social Service workers each and every day. They are the ones who are upholstering America right now and we need to keep their lives safe. Keeping their workplace out of violence and making sure their lives are at risk will help them protect all the others who need it.
