Work-related violence against those working within the community is an often unspoken fact of life. Probably few social worker students or new practitioners realise when they enter the profession that they may be targets of assaults.
It’s imperative that every employee should be made aware of potential threats that may be encountered and how to mitigate this risk of violence.
We have put together this guide to help raise awareness of the problems faced on a daily basis for those in the community. Using our extensive knowledge of personal safety matters, we’ve created a comprehensive list in how to manage risk when out on call.
