UNISON is concerned about the
number of violent incidents to our members.
Violence includes threats, verbal abuse and
harassment as well as actual attacks and injury
to staff by clients and members of the public.
To gain more information about
the risks of violence UNISON is conducting
a confidential survey. UNISON does not
accept that you should put up with violence
at work as part of your job. It is not
the individual's fault when it happens.
Work related violence can be prevented and
controlled, and your employer has legal duties
to ensure your safety.
To help us raise the issue of violence with
your employer we need more evidence of the
extent and causes of violence against staff.
Please complete this confidential questionnaire
and return it to your UNISON representative.
Please help us to help you. Please
submit before 14 May 2003
