Abstract:

This audit examined whether local and statewide systems are sufficiently and appropriately protecting healthcare workers from the risks and incidence of occupational violence.
It focused on:

  • Dept. of Human Services' role as manager of the Victorian health system
  • WorkSafe's role as the occupational health and safety regulator in supporting employers to reduce and control occupational violence risks through its education and enforcement activities
  • Ambulance Victoria and selected health services - with a particular focus on three hospitals - in their role as employers responsible for identifying, responding to and preventing or mitigating the risk of occupational violence to protect their workers.
