Brian Uridge - Achieving a Culture of Zero Violence

Violence is one of the most significant occupational hazards facing health care workers today. According to OSHA, 75% of all violence in any workplace occurs in a healthcare setting. In 2019, assaults by patients jumped 25% and aggravated assaults more than doubled compared to the previous year. Violence reduction programs should be focused on developing a system-wide approach that recognizes every health care system as a community, with every floor being a unique neighborhood, each with different dynamics. Building trust, transparency, and training along with implementing a system-wide Community Policing Based strategy focused on reducing risk and anxiety through exceptional experience-based nontraditional contacts, staff training, professionalism, and critical incident response, form the basis from which a robust security program is built.

Brian Uridge has more than three decades of experience in law enforcement, healthcare security, and fire service. Since 2018, he has served as deputy director of public safety and security for the University of Michigan and director of security for Michigan Medicine at the University of Michigan.
