Occupational Violence

The Safe and Sound Practice Guidelines offer advice and support to school principals in preventing and responding to occupational violence in schools.

The advice and support provided in the Safe and Sound Practice Guidelines assists in both preventing and responding to incidents of aggressive, potentially violent and/or violent behaviour directed towards staff.  

The Guidelines are neither prescriptive nor exhaustive in their presentation of recommended practices. The nature and severity of challenging behaviour and violent incidents in schools vary greatly, and each school has its own specificities that might require a difference approach when dealing with a particular problem.
