Charity launches worker safety guide

A
leading charity has issued new safety guidance to help employees remain safe
from violence and abuse while in the workplace.

The
Suzy Lamplugh Trust and insurance firm AON have jointly issued the advice to
combat the loss of more than a million working hours lost every year due to
physical and verbal abuse.

The
booklet, Personal safety at work – a guidance for employees, offers basic
strategies that staff can implement during their working day.

It
also explains how to deal with aggression and physical attacks as well as
giving advice on how to assess risks and plan personal safety.

The
Suzy Lamplugh Trust was founded in 1976 by the parents of the estate agent
murdered while carrying out her job.
