Workplace violence encompasses any instance in which an individual faces abuse, threats, or assault while on the job or engaged in work-related activities. This can manifest in various forms, including physical assault, sexual harassment, verbal threats, or aggressive behaviour such as stalking. Even violence stemming from familial or domestic relationships becomes part of this picture when it occurs within the workplace, be it an external office or even one's home.
This workshop meticulously dissects the notion of unsafe working conditions, particularly within roles that involve working with vulnerable individuals and families. These settings often correlate with a heightened risk of violence directed towards workers and staff.
The repercussions of workplace violence and aggression extend beyond the immediate incident, casting a shadow over both short and long-term aspects of a worker's health. This impact includes the potential for physical injuries and illnesses, as well as the psychological harm experienced by the direct target and any witnesses.
The primary goal of this workshop is to identify such behaviours, fostering the development of strategies to empower staff in safeguarding themselves against incidents that pose potential harm.
