Disability careers and the social community care sector have seen an increase of workplace violence, abuse and aggressive behaviour towards our front-line care workers. This has spiked during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially at the start.
The team at GPS Geo Guard have worked with all areas of disability care and community care organisations to deploy a tailor made GPS Geo Guard solution to help mitigate risk, not only for the workforce of disability organisations but also for the disability clients and participants within care management plans via the NDIS.
Contact us today to find out how we can design a solution to offer you the best outcome in any risk profile for you as a individual with a disability or any size workforce in the disability sector.
Main risks in the Disability Care
Disability care workers face two main risk profiles:
Being that of work place violence and aggressive behavior; physical or verbal assault
Slip/trip/fall/person down or incapacity, unconsciousness, accident or incident, or even a medical situation
WHY EVERYONE IS CHOOSING GPS GEO GUARD
All disability care workers should be treated with dignity and respect.
We may know the risk profile of our client, but not who is going to be there at the same time as your time of visit or what may occur at the job environment.
Implementing the GPS Geo Guard Personal Safety Solution can deliver safety benefits to the front-line disability care workers, but also help department managers and the wider organisation deliver genuine value to the employer in terms of safety, quicker emergency response, operational and increasing staff moral knowing they have something just in case.
