WORKPLACE VIOLENCE RESEARCH PROJECT

Defining best practice for the management of workplace violence and aggression in Australia.

What is this about?
Workplace violence and aggression is a growing concern for many different industries, but research on the scope and severity of the problem in Australia is lacking. The ASRC is conducting a research project to address this dearth of data focusing on the following six industries:

  • Public transport and air travel
  • Private security industry
  • Retail and customer service
  • Liquor and hospitality
  • Banking and financial services
  • Healthcare and aged care services

Goals of the Study

  • To establish academically verified set of best-practice recommendations for the management and prevention of workplace aggression and violence in Australia.
  • Understanding the impact and importance of the reduction of physical injury and mental health issues.
