New developments in decreasing staff injuries in human service settings
A commonly acknowledged, but understudied, concern in applied behavior analysis is that of employee injuries. Human services has an injury rate significantly higher than the average industry and for too long it has been taken for granted that direct care staff will simply be injured on the job if serving individuals with significant needs. This presentation will review the behavioral literature on injuries in human services and present new data related to keeping staff members safe as they implement behavior intervention plans.
- When asked, participants will state the most common causes of injuries in human services and why these types of injuries present unique problems
- When asked, participants will state the steps of the behavioral safety process along with some potential pinpoints for measurement.
