Family & Domestic Violence
Violence and abuse are not unique to any workplace, but the solutions to solve them are.
Workplaces play a vital role in identifying and preventing family and domestic violence. According to the ABS, approximately 800,000 women, or around 1 in 6 female workers are currently experiencing domestic or family violence.
Managers & Leaders
Our workplace training packages have been developed both to raise awareness, alleviate stigma and work towards eliminating family and domestic violence.
Workplace leaders have an obligation to their staff to minimise risk and offer support and this extends beyond the basic occupational health and safety guidelines. Recognising the signs of FDV in the workplace is the first step toward providing resources and support to staff or colleagues who may be affected by violence and will go a long way to alleviating family and domestic violence.
Topics covered by this workshop include;
Understanding family and domestic violence
