The Hospital Safety and Security Summit NSW is bringing together workplace H&S, OHS & clinical leaders from hospitals across Australia to re-evaluate their incident reporting & prevention strategies & identify the best ways to manage workplace violence. The majority of aggressive incidents happen when staff interactions with patients and family of patients lead to physical, verbal, and emotional abuse towards staff. 

With a high number of emerging and pre-existing safety challenges, hospitals are reinforcing their security towards visitors and have put forward zero tolerance policy for aggressive and violent behaviour towards staff. Local Health Districts and Hospital Networks must demonstrate their willingness to address the risks of safety & security challenges by focusing on promoting health safety and wellbeing culture across the healthcare system in Australia. Secure hospital workplace for clinical and operational staff is interlinked with streamlined incident response strategies and mandatory training which is a prominent set of skills for effective conflict resolution.
