Social Worker Safety - Update
In the wake of the July 30, 2008 murder of Right From the Start Social Worker Brenda Lee Yeager, elected officials reviewed issues of social worker safety in West Virginia.  This resulted in the passage of HB2566, a bill to update the state's malicious assault law to more clearly cover social workers who provide contracted services, as well as all government representatives and healthcare workers in the performance of their duties. Governor Manchin subsequently signed the bill into law in 2009.

November 2012 Update: NASW WV has encouraged the Legislature to be proactive in reviewing safety issues for all state employees who are expected to make field visits, rather than waiting for a disasterous event to spur action. To this end we caused a Study Resolution to be introduced and Legislative Interim Committee on Government Organization is currently discussing the topic. Chapter CEO Sam Hickman gave a report to a subcommittee in August and additional testimony from other entities is anticiated during the December interim meetings. Goals are to achieve statewide standards for worker safety regareless of department or title, to logically allocate technology solutions, and to share findings, policy recommendations and resources with the private and non-profit sectors.

In addition, Mr. Hickman was invited to participate on a national NASW panel of experts to develop safety guidelines for social workers, which should become available in early 2013.
