Caring for the Care Givers

Healthcare involves hospitals, clinics, dental offices, out-patient surgery centres, birthing centres, emergency medical care, home healthcare, and nursing homes. Health care practitioners include nurses, paramedics and allied health professionals.

Work in the healthcare sector is not necessarily safe or healthy. More workers are injured in the healthcare and social assistance industry sector than any other. This industry has one of the highest rates of work related injuries and illnesses. Healthcare work is not necessarily safe or healthy.  In fact, it can be quite dangerous!

WorkSafety Pty Ltd can help organisations in the healthcare sector deal with these challenges.

Healthcare workers face a number of serious work safety and health hazards. Due to the nature of the work itself, these hazards include bloodborne pathogens and biological hazards, potential chemical and drug exposures, ergonomic and musculo-skeletal hazards from lifting, awkward postures and repetitive tasks (and so on).
Added to these 'physical' WHS issues, there is the impact of excessive work hours and an extraordinary prevalence of clinical depression amongst carers (doctors, nurses, emergency service and first responder personnel.
Increasingly, healthcare workers are facing extreme hazards of occupational violence and assault posed by patients (and their families) and members of the public - and disappointingly, also from within the healthcare profession.  Bullying, victimisation,  intimidation and continuous vitriolic harassment are of great concern.
