Training must improve staff safety and empower people to proactively enhance the services to the people they support.
Ensuring personal safety at work is a fundamental aspect of supporting the well-being of people across all workplace areas.
Feeling safe in the workplace contributes to employee satisfaction, mental health, and overall job fulfilment.
Employees who feel safe are more likely to be focused and engaged in their work, leading to increased efficiency and effectiveness.
Conversely, workplaces marred by incidents of violence or aggression can experience decreased morale, absenteeism, and a decline in productivity.
Employers who neglect their responsibilities will face legal consequences and damage the reputation of their organisation.
Various occupational health and safety regulations mandate that employers must assess and manage risks to staff safety in the workplace.
However, it is essential to note that under reporting remains a common issue.
Many incidents go unreported due to fear of retaliation, concerns about job security, or a lack of confidence in the reporting process.
Remember once incident of violence and aggression can affect many people.
All training centres around making people feel confident that they will do the right thing when the moment arises.
