In workplaces worldwide, the daunting issue of occupational violence persists, posing a grave threat to the safety, well-being, and dignity of employees. Whether it’s verbal harassment or physical assault, the spectrum of occupational violence is broad, with its repercussions extending far beyond the workplace confines.

However, one of the most formidable obstacles in addressing this issue is the prevalent culture of silence enveloping it. Many employees may shy away from reporting incidents of violence, fearing retaliation, disbelief, or stigma. Additionally, employers’ tendency to overlook or dismiss complaints only perpetuates a cycle of impunity and inaction.

At IDS, we stand firm in our support for individuals to speak out against occupational violence. This courageous act is fundamental in affecting real change in the workplace. Within our organisation, we cultivate a culture of trust, respect, and accountability, ensuring that employees feel empowered to report incidents without fear of reprisal.

Looking ahead to 2024, IDS is committed to implementing robust policies, procedures, and support mechanisms to address and mitigate instances of occupational violence among our staff.

If you have any concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact IDS management at 9340 5100 for support and further information. Your well-being is our priority.
