The prevention of workplace violence has emerged as an important safety issue in and around hospitals and healthcare facilities. Workplace violence, such as physical assaults, or threatening or violent behavior, are a growing problem in the workplace.

Occupational stress has also been a long-standing concern in the health care industry. Studies indicate health care workers have elevated rates of depression and anxiety linked to job stress.
