The Staff Safety Problem
- Around two million US workers experience workplace violence each year
- 693,000 UK workers sustained non-fatal injuries in 2019/20 contributing to an estimated total of 6.3 million working days lost
- Extensive legislation in Europe and Australia to protect workers
Those who work with money, the public or alone are at greatest risk:
- Healthcare, e.g., emergency, and psychiatric units
- Retail, e.g., theft and merchandise loss
- Manufacturing/Industrial – lone worker
Employers are rightful concerned with the safety of their staff:
- It’s the right thing to do
- $121 billion annual losses are attributed to workplace assaults
- $3 or more is saved for each dollar invested in workplace safety
Staff safety is always a priority, especially for mobile workers dealing with the public, or handling money. Whether in healthcare, retail, manufacturing—your staff may find itself in unpredictable situations, often alone.
