Injury in Behavioral & Mental Health Settings: A Safety Risk Assessment Roadmap

February 2019
Tool

The following table provides a crosswalk of design categories in the built environment (e.g., unit layout) and safety issues to consider in behavioral and mental health settings (e.g., blind spots). This table is meant to serve as a high-level roadmap for design considerations in conjunction with the online Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) toolkit (www.healthdesign.org/sra). It is not intended to serve as a substitute for the online version of the SRA tool.







For additional considerations, refer to Reducing Injury and Harm: An Issue Brief on Safety for Behavioral & Mental Health.
