Forskere på Fafo: Jørgen Svalund
This report addresses violence and threats of violence against employees in three areas of public sector: Child welfare offices, child welfare institutions and services for physically disabled persons. We raise the following main questions:
- To what degree are employees in these services exposed to violence or threat of violence?
- To what degree do the businesses employ any preemptive measures in order to reduce the occurrence of violence and threat of violence against their employees?
- What kind of guidelines have the businesses implemented concerning how incidents of violence and threat of violence against employees are handled after the fact?
- What are the consequences of violence and threat of violence towards employees health and well- being?
