Managing and responding to dangerous situations

Updated: 29 July 2019

What's Important To Us

Violence can be defined as a public or private act that engenders fear or feelings of vulnerability. It includes any act that can be perceived as threatening to ones wellbeing. Staff safety is critical to our ability to provide a quality service to children, young people and families/whānau. We each have a role to play, from informing of dangerous or potentially dangerous situations through to developing strategies and responses to dangerous situations.
