Description:
In 1992 the Health and Safety Authority established an Advisory Committee on the Health Services Sector. This Committee represented a wide range of expertise, from both Social Partners, Health Boards, Professional organisations and Department of Health. It was recognised that the Health Services Sector was one of the significant areas, in terms of number of persons involved and the risks arising, which came within the scope of occupational health and safety legislation for the first time with the passing of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 1989. The report of the Committee identified 11 % of all reported accidents being caused by assault and recommended this for attention. This guidance document is in response to this recommendation.
