Management of Workplace Aggression and Violence – ZERO tolerance

Occupational violence or physical environmental risk, slip/trip/fall, or medical incident is not just limited to hospitals and community disability care health hubs, but also including of all disability care working environments where nurses engage, for example: rural and remote community when offering services and care to a multitude of different disabilities, including;

• vision Impairment.
• deaf or hard of hearing.
• mental health conditions.
• intellectual disability.
• acquired brain injury.
• autism spectrum disorder.
• physical disability.
• Random Out bursts of Aggression from underlying conditions

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:

Social Risk

Being that of work place violence and aggressive behavior; physical or verbal assault

Physical Risk

Slip/trip/fall/person down or incapacity, unconsciousness, accident or incident, or even a medical situation

WHY EVERYONE IS CHOOSING GPS GEO GUARD

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.
