Health care workers (HCW) face many workplace safety risks and in some specialties female HCW encounter risks at a particularly higher rate than males, in some cases because more women than men take on high-risk careers that pose dangers in order to care for their patients.
These are just a few scenarios in which health care workers can be at risk during the workday. It is important for health care organizations to recognize these risks and take steps toward mitigating them. Best practices include conducting comprehensive workplace analyses, developing robust safety plans, offering detailed staff training and employing relevant engineering controls. When taken together, these actions can go a long way toward keeping both women and men safe.
