Organizations often respond to regulatory compliance issues in an ad hoc, one-off manner. This approach is less and less viable as regulatory mandates, such as those of the CALOSHA Workplace Violence Prevention Standard, continue to multiply. Organizations should approach compliance holistically, creating solutions that work together over the long term. This means assessing compliance practices in light of the total cost of compliance (including the company's risk exposure), coming up with effective ways of measuring the effectiveness of compliance efforts and creating a compliance governance structure that allows planning for the future.

As with many new regulations, the CALSOHA Comprehensive Workplace Violence Prevention Standard will require enhanced compliance obligations from the entire California Healthcare Industry. Compliance will include detailed recordkeeping, change management protocols, internal and external reporting, internal and external audits, and conducting routine training, drills, and exercises. Implementing this new standard will require subject matter expertise and a comprehensive knowledge of the standard, regulations, and implementing guidance. To ensure compliance, a governance program must be established to maintain compliance for the years to come and to provide program oversight in areas such as budgeting.
