What it contains

Work-related violence involves incidents in which a person is abused, threatened or assaulted in circumstances relating to their work. This definition covers a broad range of actions and behaviours that can create a risk to the health and safety of employees. It includes behaviour sometimes described as acting out, challenging behaviour and behaviours of concern.

This tool can assist employers to control the risks of work-related violence in different workplace scenarios.

The tool is for situations when elimination of the risk is not reasonably practicable or successful, and further measures are required to control or reduce the risk to an acceptable level.
