In September last year, we began the Addressing Occupational Violence in the Victorian Disability Sector project. We had over 5500 contacts with people working at all levels of organisations interested in this issue, plus regulators, academics, researchers and other stakeholders. We thank everyone who contributed to a successful first year.
In its first year, the Occupational Violence project had two main purposes:
To identify and share good practice to build the capacity of organisations to implement effective strategies to develop and maintain safe systems of work that reduce instances of occupational violence while upholding the human rights of the people with disability they support.??
