OVERVIEW

Why use SafeStaff+?

Community services workers have the highest rate of physical and stress related Workcover injuries in Australia and it’s likely that this rate will continue to rise as clients are increasingly presenting with complex needs.

SafeStaff+ is aimed at ensuring your staff can work effectively with all clients, especially those with complex needs, without the increased risk of physical or stress related injuries.

The program can be tailored to the level of risk that is inherent your organisation’s work.  For example, reception staff at a community health centre, who are (presumably) exposed to limited risk because they work behind ‘security screens’, would receive different training than that of an outreach worker working
with homeless people with ICE addictions or a caseworkers who is required to do home visits.

Note: SafeStaff+ does not provide training in any form of restraint especially physical restraint.

Who is it suitable for?
