Staff Safety Toolkit

This toolkit was developed to build the capacity of organizations around the safety of staff. It includes guiding principles based on current best practices in safety training and a framework for sharing key information. The Toolkit looks at staff safety from the three perspectives, other people, place and self. Developed for use by those responsible for in-house training and supervision, and will address the four key elements of motivation, reinforcement, retention and transference to day to day work. The tools will be designed to encourage frontline staff to take an active and cognitive approach to learning that will enable them to identify potential risks, reconcile, experiences and reflect on the core values needed to be safe and successful in their work. The focus is on providing consistent messaging and the sharing useful strategies and resources. This is a living document.
