Occupational Violence and Aggression Worksafe – It’s Never Ok.
Worksafe have launched a new campaign, highlighting the very real issues that Victorian Healthcare workers are facing.
Most healthcare workers want to help others when they’re at their most vulnerable. But we are facing a serious issue in our healthcare sector.
Workers are regularly confronted with violence and aggression – from patients and residents, visiting friends and family, even bystanders.
The people who behave this way are not just those under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or those who are not of full capacity of mind. Often it’s everyday people who find themselves in a stressful situation.
No matter the situation, aggression and violence against healthcare workers is never OK.
Let’s work together to stop it.
