Occupational violence is a problem with significant legal, economic and emotional consequences for employers and individuals. This handbook focuses on the prevention of violence that arises within an organisation, that is, between a supervisor and an employee or between one employee and another. To this end, it outlines processes for risk identification, risk assessment and risk control and includes a series of possible policy, strategy, checklist documents as appendices.

This project was funded by the Crime Prevention Branch of the Criminal Justice Division, Commonwealth Attorney-General's Department.
