PDH Takes United Stand Against Aggression Toward Health Workers
Portland District Health staff and management are taking a united stand to stamp out any form of aggression towards health service workers.
PDH has launched a new campaign on untoward behaviour, saying everybody is entitled to a safe workplace and respectful encounters free from occupational violence and aggression.
The campaign follows an upswing of aggressive behaviour in recent months, particularly in the Urgent Care Centre where staff report multiple cases most weeks.
The campaign also coincides with National Safe Work Month in October, a time to make a commitment to improving safety and health in the workplace.
